York City Football Club has a long history as a professional association football club based in York, England. Founded in 1908, they played several seasons before and after the First World War in the Northern and Midland leagues. They were elected to play in the Football League for 1929–30, in the Third Division North. They had their best FA Cup season in 1954–55, when they reached the semi-final, but lost to the First Division club Newcastle United in a replay. York played in the Third Division North until 1958–59, when a league reorganisation landed them in the Fourth Division. The same season, they finished third and won their first promotion. Their only promotion into the Second Division came in 1973–74. By mid-October 1974, they were in fifth place—their highest league ranking—before finishing the season in 15th place. They faced two successive relegations in 1976 and 1977, and a 22nd-place finish in the 1977–78 Fourth Division forced the club to apply for re-election. (Full article...)
