There used to be two Bradford's. Bradford City, still in the league, and Bradford Park Avenue, no longer in the league.

Of those sides no longer in the league, how many played in the top tier at one time?

I'd hazard a guess at Notts County and Bury.

I think Southport & Workington were the last two to go out of the league by 'vote', as opposed to automatically.
Without Googling(!) who were they respectively, replaced by?
Barrow went out at the same time I reckon and then Hereford, Wycombe and Wigan have been around for what seems like ages, even though Hereford have since gone again

Two Southampton Players look like they are pleading for forgiveness. Crystal Palace goalkeeper John Jackson looks on while referee Clive Thomas blows his nose.

Notts County, Bury and Bradford City. Thought everyone would have got Bradford City. Remember we beat them 5-4 in a PL game, not that may years ago?

Yes, of course they are. I was getting distracted by some of the previous posts and went off on a tangent. :shock:

I remember that Bradford game very well, an absolute classic West Ham topsy turvy game.
