We are the London Trickies – catering for Nottingham Forest supporters exiled in the Smoke or the Suburbs.
The London and Southern Counties Branch of the Nottingham Forest Supporters Club dates back to 1977, just as Brian Clough and Peter Taylor were leading the club into the top flight of English football.
For a while Wembley became our second home – we all know about a league title, two European Cups and four League Cups – although we’re definitely due a bit of success now.
In 2017 we held a hugely successful event to celebrate our 40th anniversary at which one of our Miracle Men, Garry Birtles, and the club chairman Nicholas Randall QC, proved brilliant guests.
We have enjoyed close links with our parent Nottingham Forest Supporters Club throughout the past 40 yeaars time and have been pleased to welcome several key figures from the club for functions in London including Frank Clark, Paul Hart and our never-to-be-forgotten former club chairman Nigel Doughty.
The branch is affiliated to APFSCIL – having been one of the early members of the Association of Provincial Football Supporters Clubs in London following its formation in the early 1970s.
Today, the supporters club boasts a very successful darts team and a rapidly emerging pool team who both enjoyed fantastic 2017-18 seasons.
In the past we have also taken part in the APFSCIL Football League and APFSCIL Quiz League – if there is enough interest within the branch it would be great to resurrect one or both of those.
Our honorary president is the former Forest and England (not to mention Newcastle, Tottenham and QPR) midfielder and now Match of the Day pundit Jermaine Jenas.
