    In the first round of fixtures of the Football League in 1888, Preston North End beat Burnley 5-2 and began an unbeaten run that would make them champions of the new 12-team league. This detailed history of the historic season examines how the league was formed, recalls incidents that paved the way for the introduction of the goal net and the penalty kick, and includes reports of every match and profiles of every player.
