My book will aim to list all the foundations, mergers and extinctions of English Association football clubs from 1857 to 1888. I hope this forum can add more factual background to this under researched area. As opposed to the book there are no date restrictions on the forum so the earlier the better! I have decided to sort the football clubs initially by English County. If you do not know the county you can SEARCH by club using the box in the top right. Please start a thread in any football club that you are interested, check to see if the thread exists first by doing a search first. You will see below that there other categories to research old football clubs from other places besides England. The last category "Victorian Footballer Database" will open in 2016 once I have completed inputting all the players names.
