Northern Alliance history 1890-1915 - saved


Welcome to the ‘Northern Alliance History section’. This page provides a list of the league’s champions from 1891 onwards.

 

There has been an ‘air of mystery’ surrounding the Northern Alliance both during its early years and from the late 1940s to 1979. For a long time it seemed that the records were lost or hidden.  Some of the best research carried out on events was done by Jarrow-born Patrick Brennan. Without the work of Mr. Brennan, there would have been no easily accessible record of how things finished in the league in the early days, beyond a list of past Northern Alliance champions, which can be found in a number of locations.

 

Most of what Patrick unearthed came from leading Newcastle newspapers from the time. Unfortunately, this left gaps, with no tables for the first two seasons. Also, the tables for the first 10 seasons all contain inaccuracies and there was even some uncertainty about some of the names that teams played under. Most mysterious of all was the 1892-93 season. In all lists of champions of the Northern Alliance, Shankhouse are named as league winners. A league table published in a newspaper from mid-April 1893 calls this into question, but, given the lack of accuracy with all other league tables, it seemed possible that this record may be wrong also.

 

In October 2012, Paul Stone managed to track down an almost complete record of past Northern Alliance tables – except for the 1960-1961 season.  Thanks to Paul it is now possible to present the (almost) full story.  A bonus item in all this concerns Shankhouse’s title mystery noted above.  The club won the Northern Alliance in 1892, not a year later as previously thought.

There are one or two gaps in the story in this section, but those years which are covered are thanks to the work of Patrick Brennan, who, while carrying out research into Jarrow FC and South Shields, in the club’s pre-Football league days, has unearthed a mass of detail about the Northern Alliance.

1901-1902

 

The last league table traced comes from the main Newcastle newspapers for April 26th, 1902. There were 11 matches still left to play at that stage and the results of these are unknown. It would appear, however, that the positions at the top and bottom of the Northern Alliance were not affected.
