As per bloody usual, Pies are a day late on the uptake here but on this very (yester)day in 1888, the first ever Football League season came to a conclusion.
The final, hand-drawn Football League table looked a little something like this, with Preston North End ending the 132-game campaign top of the pile, Aston Villa and Wolves making up the top three respectively and Stoke bringing up the rear…
Preston won the inaugural Football League without losing a single game and also went on to complete the first ever domestic double by beating Wolves 3-0 in the FA Cup Final.
