Top 10 Oldest Active Football Clubs In The World

4. Worksop Town F.C. (1861)


Worksop Town FC are based in the North East Nottinghamshire and was founded in the year 1861, making them the 4th oldest football club in the history. However, if record books are to be referred to, it isn’t until 1873 when we get a reference of them having played a football match. However, if you Google this club, don’t expect to see a major stadium. Also, Wikipedia tells us that this club was actually founded in the early 1900s. This is because the only reference of them having actually played a football match wasn’t until 1911 when it was recorded in a newspaper. Their current manager is Mark Shaw.
