Forth Wanderers Football Club are a Scottish football club based in the village of ForthSouth Lanarkshire. Formed in 1904 they compete in the West Region of the Scottish Junior Football Association and play in red strips (uniforms) with a white trim.Although now more often play in a black kit. The black kit is sponsored by the Scottish band G.U.N. and the red kit by local firm Gardiner accountants, and the white kit is sponsored by engineering company Well Machined.
Since 1934 they have played at Kingshill Park in the village,[1] however they have had to share with Carluke Rovers for a spell and play on a public park in Carnwath when this ground proved unusable.
Forth have supplied two Scottish international goalkeepers in George Wood and Rab Douglas.[2][3] Rangers legend Willie Waddell came from the village and starred for the team in his pre-Ibrox days.[4]
Wanderers reached the semi-finals of the Scottish Junior Cup in 1981 and their home quarter-final tie versus East Kilbride Thistle attracted a record crowd of 2,324.[5]
The club are managed since November 2014 by Jamie McKenzie.[6]
