In recognition that East Stirlingshire was originally formed in 1880 and not the long believed year of 1881, the formation year of the club has been embroidered on the back collar of both the home and away strips. The actually formation date of the club was recently rediscovered as 1st October, 1880 when 9 young men met on that Friday evening, on the Grahamston side of Bainsford Bridge, to form a new football club. The club was originally named Bainsford Britannia, then during season 1880/81 the name changed to Bainsford and at the start of 1881/82 the current name of the club, East Stirlingshire, was adopted. If you are interested in reading more about the formation of the club, Drummond Calder’s booklets issued by the club, which cover the 1st 5 seasons of East Stirlingshire FC, are still available from the club.
