English semi-professional soccer club founded in 1890. Forest Green spent most of its history playing in the Gloucestershire Northern Senior League, winning the championship thrice: in 1938, 1950 and 1951. They moved to the newly formed Gloucestershire County League in 1968, joining several of their Senior League colleagues as well as clubs from the Bristol area. In 1974, they joined the Hellenic League and established themselves in the new league. They were promoted to the Southern League in 1982 and flirted with relegation season after season during their thirteen-year stay. They moved from the Midland Division to the Southern Division for the 1995-96 season and quickly earned promotion to the Conference in 1998, where they continue to play.
