Notts County Football Club, officially formed in 1864, is widely recognised as the world's oldest Football League club.

The club initially played matches of its own devising at Park Hollow, before moving to various locations, including Castle Cricket Ground, Nottingham Forest's Town Ground and City Ground.

The main home from 1883 onwards was Trent Bridge, until the permanent switch to Meadow Lane was completed in 1910.

In 1888, Notts County became one of 12 founder members of the Football League, and Ernest Greenhalgh was the club's first international player.
