Woking v Nottingham Forest

Woking v Nottingham Forest LDV Vans Trophy

Outside Kingfield
Inspired by the legendary manager Brian Clough, Nottingham Forest won the continent's premier football trophy twice and made their home city, a city that also boasts the oldest professional club in the world Notts County, the smallest in Europe to win the prize (until PSV Eindhoven in 1988). When the small, skinny Scot John McGovern raised the huge silver urn of the European Cup aloft to crown the reds' finest hour, an impossible dream had come wonderfully true.

Fast forward a quarter century and the same club find themselves on a rainy October night at Kingfield, the modest 6,000 capacity stadium of Conference side Woking, for an LDV Vans Trophy tie.
