How the Table Works
Since the inaugural season of 1888/89, the league has burgeoned from 12 to 92 clubs, though over 130 have participated overall (ignoring name changes).This section of my website is intended for anyone interested in tracing the fortunes of their favourite club, and indeed the fortunes of literally all the others as well. By using the main league table (See The Football League table) you can trace the complete historical record of your favourite club, as well as the likes of Darwen, Gateshead, New Brighton Tower, Middlesbrough Ironopolis, Thames Association and all the others.
