Nottingham Forest club badge

Nottingham Forest Football Club is one of the oldest football clubs in England, founded in 1865. The club was founded by a group of shinty players who met in a pub in the centre of Nottingham and decided to play association football instead. At that same meeting, they also decided that they would play in Garibaldi Red, named after the Italian general who led the volunteer redshirts in campaigns in Italy.

Nottingham Forest has not played in the Premier League for over 20 years, but the club has been successful having played in the top two tiers of English football for all but five seasons since it joined the Football League in 1888. When I was growing up, Notts Forest were a big team. Forest have won the league title, before it wa sthe Premier League, they have won the FA Cup twice, four League Cups, one FA Charity Shield, two European Cups, and one UEFA Super Cup. So it’s great to see them back in the Premier League.

Nottingham is a city located in the centre of England on the banks of the river Trent. Nottingham Forest football club is actually on the other side of the river which is technically in the town of West Bridgford. The city has a long history going back to the Norman conquest, but is probably best known for its association with the legend of Robin Hood who lived in the nearby Sherwood Forest and famously battled with the evil Sheriff of Nottingham.

Nottingham Forest are widely known simply as Forest, but the fans will cheer their team on using the nicknames The Garibaldis, The Reds and even The Tricky Trees. This last nickname dates back to some of the team’s earliest matches which were played near Sherwood Forest before they moved to the City Ground stadium by the river.
