History of Fulham Football Club

Eddie Lowe Plays 500th Game For Fulham

4 February 1963 Eddie Lowe (pictured here with his brother and a young Johnny Haynes) made his 500th appearance for the Club in 0-0 draw at West Ham United in the Third Round of the FA Cup. He would go on to make another 11 appearances, making him second on the all-time appearances list behind Johnny Haynes, with 511 games to his name.

The Whites Enjoy Record Winning Steak

21 February 1963 A 3-1 win against Nottingham Forest kick-started a run of eight consecutive victories, which remains a Club record. Defeats of Ipswich Town (1-0), Blackpool (2-0), Blackburn Rovers (1-0), Aston Villa (1-0), Manchester City (3-2), Manchester United (2-0) and West Ham United (2-0) followed.

Season Ends Comfortably For The Whites

18 May 1963 Fulham finished 16th at the end of the 1962/63 campaign. With just four wins in the first half of the season, relegation was a fear but that winning eight-game sequence eased the fans’ concerns.
