History

Founded as a church boys’ team in 1879, Fulham moved into Craven Cottage in 1896. They never made the top division until 1949, and then they bounced up and down through the 1950s and had their glory days in the 1960s. They spent nine of those years  in the top flight, led by the great Johnny Haynes, who was on England’s 1966 World Cup winners and…

Or go left, through a tunnel, and into Bishop’s Park. Yes, you can walk through a park along the River Thames to get to Craven Cottage! However, for…
