Henley Forest of Arden’s senior side, which has been providing opportunities to play football in the community since 1892, was part of the Birmingham & District League Division Two constitution for the 2022-23 season.

However, a lack of volunteers willing to put in the hours needed to run the team has resulted in the full-time whistle being blown on it.
