The earliest known written record of a Football match taking place in England, was penned by cleric William Fitzstephen after a trip to London in 1170 AD – it went:
“After dinner all the youths of the city goes out into the fields for the very popular game of ball.“
Over eight centuries later and this very English “game of ball” was transformed into the most watched sports-league in the world.

But how has your club changed over this time?
