London derby. Excerpt: Fulham Football Club ( ) is a professional
football club based in Fulham, London Borough of Hammersmith and
Fulham, southwest London. Founded in 1879, they play in the English
Premier League, and are currently in their 11th consecutive season
in the division. They are the oldest established football team from
London playing in the Premier League. The club has spent
twenty-four seasons in English football's top division, the
majority of that in two spells during the 1960s and 2000s. The
latter spell was associated with chairman Mohamed Al-Fayed, after
the club had climbed up from the fourth tier in the 1990s. Fulham
have never won a major honour, although they have reached two major
finals. In 1975, as a Second Division team, they contested the FA
Cup final for the only time in their history, losing 2-0 to West
Ham United. Fulham reached the 2010 Europa League final, which they
contested with Atletico Madrid in Hamburg, losing 2-1 after extra
time. The club has produced many English greats including Johnny
Haynes, George Cohen, Bobby Robson, Rodney Marsh and Alan Mullery.
They play at Craven Cottage, a ground on the banks of the River
Thames in Fulham which has been their home since 1896. Fulham's
training ground is located near Motspur Park, where the club's
Academy is also situated. The Second XI team, in 1886Fulham were
formed in 1879 as Fulham St Andrew's Church Sunday School F.C.,
founded by worshipers (mostly adept at cricket) at the Church of
England on Star Road, West Kensington (St Andrew's, Fulham Fields).
Fulham's mother church still stands today with a plaque
commemorating the team's foundation. They won the West London
Amateur Cup in 1887 and, having shortened the name from Fulham
Excelsior to its present form in 1888, they then won the West
London League in 1893 at the first attempt. One of the club's first
ever kits was half red, half white shirts with white shorts worn in
the 1886-7 season. Fulham started playing at their current ground
