STOKE CITY

 

To be completed.

 

Tottenham have a lot to thank Stoke for.  Their financial problems at the start of the 20th Century led to them resigning their place in the Football League and although Spurs had finished behind Grimsby Town, Bradford Park Avenue, Chesterfield and Lincoln City for the place of the relegated club, the voting was much tighter after that and following two tied votes, an eight man panel of FA blazers voted Spurs in ahead of Lincoln by five to three.

Stoke had to play in the Birmingham and District League for a while before switching to the more competitive Southern League and gaining their league position back in 1919.  It took another six years before they became a City and started moving back up the ladder.
