Founder members of the premiership

Recommended Posts

If the worst comes to the worst , the end of the season could see us become the first inaugural member of the premier league to drop out of the top 4 divisions. History makers that could be us.

Football didn’t begin in 1992. One of the founder members of the football league, from 1888 (much more significant) dropped into non league last season....

I think Accrington were the first to go out of the league?

Plumbing the depths of despair, are we?
It's really not necessary.

Sorry to be nerdy but Accrington Stanley were a different club to Accrington ( founder members of the League)...

 

Edit: Accrington resigned from the FL in 1893 so were I suppose the first founder members to leave, though Notts County have the dubious record of being the first to be ejected.

Good challenge. 

 

I guess many would argue that Wimbledon were the first Premier League club to exit the EFL
