NOTTINGHAM FOREST F.C
RECORDS

Nottingham Forest Football Club is an English Premier League Association Football club based in West Bridgford. The Club was founded in 1865. Forest became founder members of the Football Alliance in 1889 and their first major success came when they won the FA Cup in 1898. They spent much of the first half of the 20th century playing in the Second Division and their next major trophy came when they again won the FA Cup in 1959. Their most successful period came under the management of Brian Clough, between 1975 and 1993, during which time they won the English league championship, two consecutive European Cups and four League Cups. They played in the first season of the newly formed Premier League in 1992 and have subsequently suffered a number of promotions and relegations between the top three divisions of English football. Forest have been based at the City Ground since 1898 and its current capacity is 30,602. The ground was used as a venue for games during Euro 96 and hosted the FA Women's Cup final in 2007, 2008 and 2010. Contrary to popular belief the name "Forest" does not originate from Sherwood Forest, but from the Forest Recreation Ground just north of Nottingham City Centre which is where the club first played upon its formation in 1865 (though the name of the Forest Recreation Ground does in turn derive from a time when that ground was part of Sherwood Forest). The club is often referred to simply as Forest the name the club carries on their crest. Forest fans have a deep dislike of their club being referred to as Notts Forest. This is because Notts is the abbreviation of Nottinghamshire, hence Notts County, and not of Nottingham itself. The team are also called the Reds, due to the colour of their strip. The record number of appearances for the club is 692 by Bob McKinlay and the record number of goals scored for the club is 217 by Grenville Morris. The club's rivals are Derby County, Leicester City and Sheffield United.
