Football League Record

August 7th 2010 saw the start of the 112th season of the Football League since its formation in 1888 and when City reached the milestone of their 100th season in the competition in 2006/07 we joined 23 other teams who had already competed in either the Premiership or Football League in 100 or more of the seasons.

We were the first club to reach the 100th season mark without ever playing in the top division whilst the 2008/09 campaign will be our 80th season in the lowest possible division!

We have won four titles (Division 3 North in 1931/32, 1947/48 and 1951/52 and Division 4 in 1975/76) as well as promotions in 1980/81 and 1997/98. However we have had to apply for re-election on 14 occasions (three failures) and been relegated on eight occasions (once out of the League).

To date we have played 4376games, winning 1581drawing 1060and losing 1735. We have scored 6368goals and conceded 6697.

Of the 133 sides to have competed in the competition we have met 129 with the original Accrington, two Welsh sides in Merthyr and Aberdare and London based Thames the four we never played.

At the end of the 2009/10 season we had met each of the 91 other clubs in the Premiership/Football League with the side we have met the most being Darlington and Rochdale with 108. At the other end of the scale we have only met Aston Villa and Norwich City twice in the Football League whilst the 2009/10 season saw us meet Burton Albion for the first time.

Of the other 91 teams it is doubtful if any Imps' fan has seen Arsenal (last in 1914/15), Chelsea (1910/11) and Newcastle United (1897/98) play at Sincil Bank for League points!

Chelsea, Aston Villa, Norwich City and Burton Albion are the only current members who we have yet to beat whilst Middlesbrough Ironopolis and Burton Wanderers also avoided defeat against us. Forty-six wins against Doncaster is our best total followed by 42 against Darlington.

We have lost at least one game against every side we have played except Aston Villa (two draws) whilst our least favoured opponents are Rotherham United who have beaten us 39 times. Stockport County, Rochdale, Grimsby Town and Chesterfield have all won 37 times against us. We have drawn most against Darlington with 33 and have met 14 other sides without yet drawing.

We have scored most goals against Hartlepool United (170) with Crewe Alexandra (169) and Doncaster (167) just behind.

The most we have scored in a season is 121 (1951/52), the most at home is 80 (1951/52) and away 42 (1930/31). The least we have scored in a season is 27 (1896/97 from 30 games; in a 46 match season it is 41 in 1978/79), at home 16 (1910/11) and away four (1900/01).

Grimsby Town have found the back of our net on the most occasions (168) with Crewe Alexandra next on 153. The most we have conceded in a season is 101 (1919/20), at home is 46 (1962/63) and away 71 (1919/20). The least we have conceded in a season is 25 (1980/81), at home four (1901/02) and away is 14 (1980/81).
