Clapton FC - Forest Gate's own football team
The Old Spotted Dog Ground,
Upton Lane, Forest Gate E7 9NP

Don't be fooled by the name! Clapton Football Club belongs to FOREST GATE!

Founded in 1878 on Hackney Downs, it moved to the present Spotted Dog site (see map) just ten years later, in 1888, and has been there since.

The club now plays in the Essex Senior Football League. It has recently re-appointed a former manager, Chris Wood, and has several new players starting this season. It is a great team to watch, playing an attractive and passing football with skill and commitment.

Full details of the club, its history, background and personnel can be found on a supporters' website, www.claptonfchistory.co.uk> site.
