Newcastle United History
Newcastle United was founded on 9 December 1892 and have played their vast majority in the top flight of English football, although they have also competed in the second tier too. The club were a powerhouse of English football for much of their early existence, winning the First Division title within 13 years of their formation and won it three times in the 1900s. However, the modern era has seen Newcastle fall on tougher times when it comes to silverware, having last lifted a major trophy in 1955 when they won the FA Cup.
They produced one of the most iconic teams to never win a trophy in English football during the 1990s. Known as “the entertainers” for their attacking style of play, Newcastle twice finished as runners-up in the Premier League in the 1995/96 and 1996/97 seasons under Kevin Keegan. In the former season, the Magpies infamously squandered a 12-point lead over Manchester United to be pipped to the title. These teams featured players such as Alan Shearer, Les Ferdinand, Peter Beardsley, David Ginola, David Batty, Faustino Asprilla, Rob Lee and Steve Watson.
The aforementioned Shearer is regarded as the greatest player in the club’s history and holds the record as their all-time leading goalscorer. He scored 206 goals in 405 appearances for the club, six more than the previous record holder Jackie Milburn. However, he falls short of Jimmy Lawrence when it comes to appearances, who played 496 times for the club and is joined by Frank Hudspeth and Shay Given in the top three.
