Maybe they'll test you on the history of forest green on your way in.  Not too much studying to pass that test I suppose.

Not if we take the wording listed in the footer at the bottom of their forum page.

I quote: "we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world."

That site says they're "one of the oldest clubs in the world", founded 1889.
 
Quote from: wiki
They became founder members of the Mid Gloucestershire League five years later. Competing in various local league competitions for much of the 20th century, they won a multitude of league titles: the Dursley & District League (1902–03), the Stroud & District League (1911–12 and 1920–21), the Stroud Premier League (1934–35, 1935–36 and 1936–37), the North Gloucestershire League (1920–21 and 1921–22), and the Gloucestershire Northern Senior League (1937–38, 1949–50 and 1950–51). They became founder members of the Gloucestershire County League in 1968, before they were moved up to the Premier Division of the Hellenic League seven years later.

Heady stuff.

Ten years younger than Swindon and I highly doubt that we’re up there in the oldest clubs rankings.

As a side, I think Chippenham are the oldest club in Wilts aren’t they?

If we accept the 1879 date, we are the 22nd oldest club in the league. Notts County were usually cited as being the oldest, but since they dropped out of the league, can you say who has taken that mantle (without looking it up obvs)?

I know they're older than us, as a friend likes to point out frequently.
