BRIEF HISTORY of GLOSSOP FOOTBALL CLUB (reproduced from 'Wikipedia' pages)

Glossop North End were founded in 1886, when they played friendly amateur matches. They played at various grounds in the town, including Pyegrove, Silk Street, Water Lane and Cemetery Road before settling at North Road. The club joined the North Cheshire League in 1890, before moving to The Combination in 1894 and turning professional. In their first season in the Combination, 189495, they finished as runners-up. After ending the following season, 189596, in third, the club moved to the Midland League and in the 189697 season finished as runners-up. After a second season in the Midland League, they were elected to the Second Division of the Football League in 189899 finishing as runners-up to Manchester City and winning promotion to the First Division. They hen changed their name to Glossop (to avoid any confusion with Preston North End) before spending their one and only season in the top flight, 18991900 when they finished in last place and were relegated back to the Second Division, having won only 4 matches, all at home, against Burnley, Nottingham Forest, Blackburn and Aston Villa.

They then spent the next fifteen seasons in the Second Division, during which time they reached the quarter-finals of the FA Cup in 190809 where they lost to 10 to eventual finalists Bristol City in a replay on 10 March 1909. The 191314 season saw a club record attendance of 10,736 for an FA Cup second round match against Preston North End on 31 January 1914. However, the following season they finished bottom of the league. The start of World War I meant the Football League closed down. Glossop were re-formed toward the end of the war by Oswald Partington, but failed to be re-elected to the Football League. Glossop then joined the Lancashire Combination, playing just one season, 191920. Northern Nomads ground-shared with Glossop for several years during this time. The club then dropped out of the Lancashire Combination and into the Manchester League. In the 1920s and 1930s they won the Gilcryst Cup three times and were crowned Manchester League champions in 192728. They won the Gilcryst Cup for a fourth time in 194748.

During 1955, the club moved from its original home of North Road to their current ground Surrey Street. In 1957 Glossop rejoined the Lancashire Combination, finishing in eighth in 195758. They spent nine seasons in the league before dropping back down once more to the Manchester League after the 196566 season. They joined the Cheshire County League as founder members of Division Two in the 197879 season, finishing in 17th. In 198081 they were Division Two runners-up, only losing out on the title on goal difference, but still winning promotion to Division One. After a sixth place finish in 198182, the club became founder members of the newly formed North West Counties Football League in 1982 when the Cheshire County League merged with the Lancashire Combination. In 1986, the club marked their centenary season with a match with sister club Arsenal. They joined Division One, however they struggled in the league for the next six seasons and after finishing bottom in 198788 were relegated to Division Two. The 199091 season saw the club reach the fourth round of the FA Vase where they lost to Cammell Laird 21 in a replay. They also won the North West Counties Football League Division Two Cup, beating Cheadle Town 21 in the final.[6] However, the club almost folded in 199091 when their then Chairman sold the ground to the local council and left the club with large debts. The present Board of Directors took over in January 1991. After a sixth place finish in 199192 they were promoted back to Division One over higher-placed clubs and after the season the directors reverted the club's name back to Glossop North End.
