Club History:

Shiloh joined WMCFL in 2008 and represent the Mount Shiloh church based in East Wolverhampton city centre. Shiloh enjoyed 08/09 and were perhaps best known for excellent sportsmanship, high standards or discipline and behaviour rather than achievements on the football pitch. They finished eighth in Division Three, although in no way disgraced themselves, conceding a paltry 47 goals. It was perhaps in front of goal that they lacked, rather than in defence that was reasonably secure.

Shiloh change their name to Zion City for the 2009/10 season and once again did alright in Division Three. Sadly they lasted for just two seasons before the club folded: a shame. They will be remembered as a great bunch of lads who did their church proud and were known as a very sporting team.

Zion City rejoined WMCFL for the 2012/13 season, with many of the former names on board. They are now affiliated to the Zion City Tabernacle Church in Wolverhampton.
