Nottingham Forest are now oldest Football League club as confirmed by Football League

I was glad to be able to help confirm that following Notts County's unfortunate relegation to the Conference that Nottingham Forest are the oldest Football League club. Stoke City had tried to claim this but the records show that their first game was in 1868. The original Stoke also went bust in 1908 and were reformed fairly quickly as a new club that re-entered the Football League after WWI.

Stoke's first game was in 1868
