Club History 

Founding and early years 1884

Formed in 1884 by a group of old boys of Wyggeston School as “Leicester Fosse”, the club joined The Football Association (FA) in 1890.[8] Before moving to Filbert Street in 1891, the club played at five different grounds, including Victoria Park south-east of the city centre and the Belgrave Road Cycle and Cricket Ground.[9] The club also joined the Midland League in 1891, and were elected to Division Two of the Football League in 1894 after finishing second. Leicester’s first ever Football League game was a 4–3 defeat at Grimsby Town, with a first League win the following week, against Rotherham United at Filbert Street. The same season also saw the club’s largest win to date, a 13–0 victory over Notts Olympic in an FA Cup qualifying game.[2] In 1907–08 the club finished as Second Division runners-up, gaining promotion to the First Division, the highest level of English football. However, the club were relegated after a single season which included the club’s record defeat, a 12–0 loss against Nottingham Forest.[2][10]

In 1919, when League football resumed after World War I, Leicester Fosse ceased trading due to financial difficulties of which little is known. The club was reformed as “Leicester City Football Club”, particularly appropriate as the borough of Leicester had recently been given city status. Following the name change, the club enjoyed moderate success in the 1920s; under the management of Peter Hodge, who left in May 1926 to be replaced two months later by Willie Orr, and with record goalscorer Arthur Chandler in the side,[11] they won the Division Two title in 1924–25[12] and recorded their second-highest league finish in 1928–29 as runners-up by a single point to Sheffield Wednesday.[8] However the 1930s saw a downturn in fortunes, with the club relegated in 1934–35[13] and, after promotion in 1936–37,[14] another relegation in 1938–39 would see them finish the decade in Division Two.[2][15]
