History

K.F.C. Winterslag history (1923--1988)

The club F.C. Winterslag was founded in 1923 and it became that year a member of the Belgian Football Association that gave it the matricule n°322. On its 35th anniversary the club changed its name to K.F.C. Winterslag. In 1972 Winterslag reached the second division and it eventually qualified for the 1974-75 season in the first division after finishing second in the final round. It had taken advantage of the increase in the number of first division clubs (from 16 to 20). The club ended the season in last place but won the second division right after.

That season Standard Liège won the championship on bribery in a match against the club of Waterschei Thor that would eventually merge with the matricule n°322. Following a spell of four seasons in the second division, Winterslag found its place again in the first division by winning the 1987 final round, one point ahead of Tongeren. It finished 15th on 18 but at the end of the season, the club merged with the neighbour club of Waterschei Thor which was playing in the second division since its relegation in 1986.

K. Waterschei S.V. Thor Genk

K. Waterschei S.V. Thor Genk was created in 1919 as Waterschei's Sport Vereeniging Thor with Thor being the acronym of Tot Herstel Onzer Rechten ("To recover our rights"). It registered to the FA only in 1925 and received the matricule n°533. The club enjoyed a spell in the first division in the late 1950s to the early 1960s and again from 1978 to 1986. After two seasons in the second division, K. Waterschei S.V. Thor Genk merged with K.F.C. Winterslag to form K.R.C. Genk. During the season 1982-83, the match Standard Liège-Waterschei had been bribed and the Standard eventually won the championship. Waterschei won the Belgian Cup twice (1980 and 1982). Quite remarkably, the latter victory led to Waterschei reaching the Semi - Finals of the European Cup Winners Cup in season 1982 - 83. After defeating PSG in the Quarter - Finals, Waterschei lost the First Leg of the Semi - Final 5 - 1 at Pittodrie, home of the eventual winners, Aberdeen F.C. A 1 - 0 victory in Waterschei, courtesy of Eddy Voordeckers, could not reverse the position. They then absorbed into Winterslag in 1988 to form the current club. K. Waterschei S.V.
