Newcastle United FC were founded in 1892 after East End FC decided to give their club a new image. Newcastle United's first home colours were red and black in 1881 then claret and sky blue in 1890 and then their trademark black and white in 1894. The name change wasn’t legalised until 1895 although the club were entered into the Football League divison two in 1893. The club’s first couple of seasons were fairly uninspiring but they eventually gained promotion to the first division in 1897 with a 2nd place finish. Although initially the team didn’t make much of an impact, they had a fantastic spell at the top of the game between 1904 and 1911 where they won three league titles and one FA Cup in 1910 where they beat Barnsley 2-0 in a replay. The club also reached the final on four other occasions during this period.
The 1920’s saw Newcastle continue pretty much where they had left off. Although they didn’t make much of an impression in the first couple of years they were still a big team to be reckoned with. However, in 1924, the club won their second FA Cup trophy with a 2-0 victory over Aston Villa. This failed to reignite their league form until 1927 when the team won their final division one title to date with Hughie Gallacher’s goals being the main source of inspiration. However, it proved a one off as several average mid table finishes followed. The club’s last main success of this era came in 1932 with Newcastle’s 3rd FA Cup victory with a 2-1 victory over Arsenal. Unfortunately, in 1934 the team were relegated and remained in division two right up until the Second War World broke out in 1939.
The club eventually made it back to division one in 1965 yet failed to make any impact on the division or cup competitions in the years that followed. However, the team did achieve an unexpected success in 1969 by winning the Inter Cities Fairs Cup. Even so, the team had no impact in the league at all but achieved a couple of decent runs in the domestic cup competitions with runner up spots in the FA Cup of 1974 and the League Cup of 1976. However, the club’s poor league form finally caught up with them in 1978 as they were relegated to division two. Some fairly average league campaigns followed before a 3rd place finish in 1984 saw them back amongst the country’s elite. Newcastle achieved little success in the 1980’s and were relegated once again to division two and remained there as the Premier League got underway in 1992.
