Fall 1912: Pierre Deschamps, 39, director of primary school than boys from Guingamp, a company created physical education. It is called “Forward”. The colors chosen are red and black. The En Avant de Guingamp is one of the many secular patronages born from the desire of teachers of the Third Republic.
The first title is not long since April 25, 1914; the Guingamp won a tournament organized by Le Moniteur des Cotes-du-Nord by defeating AS Briochins gouédicaise 1-0 at the velodrome of Saint-Brieuc.
The statutes of the association are officially registered in sub-prefecture of Guingamp on 22 December 1918.
The early years, the club did not field record. As opportunities, footballers play on practice grounds, in stages of Cozen and the Metairie-new, in the meadow of Saint-Loup and even on the place of Vally.
This does not preclude the Forward in 1920 to become champion of the second series of district during his first official competition, and access in the first series.
