Oldest football clubs

British Isles[edit] Defunct clubs[edit] Newspaper articles describing the game between the Body-guard Club and the Fear-nought Club, held on Christmas Day 1841 While the first clubs emerged in Britain, possibly as early as the fifteenth century, these are poorly-documented and defunct. The Foot-Ball Club (active 1824–41) of Edinburgh, Scotland, is the first documented club dedicated to football, and the first to describe itself as a football club.[4] The only surviving club rules forbade tripping, but allowed pushing and holding and the picking up of the ball.[5] Other documents describe a game involving 39 players and "such kicking of shins and such tumbling".

Other early clubs include the Great Leicestershire Cricket and Football Club present in 1840.[6] Sheffield F.C. Indian Super League - Hero ISL latest news and updates.

The Best Ever Finishes By English Managers In The Premier League. For a country which has what many would describe as ‘the best league in the world’ England has never, in the 25 Premier League seasons, produced an English Premier League manager.

The Best Ever Finishes By English Managers In The Premier League

The debate could rage on for days as to whether the level of coaching, from grass-roots right up to the Premier League, is up to scratch, or whether or not the big clubs are too reluctant to give English managers a chance. At the start of the 2016/2017 Premier League season only four of the twenty managers were actually born in England. Bournemouth’s highly rated Eddie Howe and Burnley’s talented Sean Dyche were the only two who started the season who kept their jobs with Crystal Palace’s Alan Pardew and Hull City’s Mike Phelan both sacked during the campaign. Whilst it’s true that the likes of Eddie Howe, Sean Dyche and even Paul Clement could have big futures in the game, will we ever see an English Premier League winning manager?

In 1999, the Carlisle United soccer team from the county of Cumbria in northwest England was on the verge of being relegated down a league.

Unknown goalie scores the most important goal in soccer team’s history

They had to win against Plymouth Argyle or it was a done deal. The score was 1-1, 10 seconds left. Time for one more play, a corner kick. With nothing to lose, Carlisle moved their whole team in front of the net in a final effort to make something happen. This included the goalkeeper, Jimmy Glass, an unknown player on loan from another team. Here’s the story… The transcript of the announcer sums things up pretty well… Well, well … and the corner kick comes in … and … the goalkeeper’s punch … oh … Jimmy Glass! Despite only ever playing three games for Carlisle, Jimmy Glass (as an announcer in a different clip remarked) will never have to buy a drink in Cumbria again. 500 REASONS TO LOVE FOOTBALL.
