Achieving success for all


The Forman brothers, Frank and Frederick, lived in Aston over 100 years ago.  

They were keen footballers, and played for the village team when they were young.  

When they were both 19 years old, they signed for Derby County.  

Later, they both went on to sign for Nottingham Forest. Here, they had huge success.  

They were both part of the Nottingham Forest squad when the club won the FA Cup in 1898. (They beat Derby County 3-1.) 

Both brothers also played for England. They were the first brothers to play in the same England game together and the first brothers to score in the same international match (against Ireland in 1899).
