Accrington Stanley >>

The original Accrington club were founder members of the Football League in 1888, but resigned in 1893 and went out of business a couple of years later. Meanwhile a separate club, Stanley Villa, founded in 1891, changed their name to Accrington Stanley in 1893. So these two clubs are definitely different. Stanley were founder members of Division 3 North in 1921, but went out of business in 1962, when they were replaced by Oxford United. They reformed in 1963 but went out of business again in 1966. The third Stanley club were formed in 1968 and regained their League status in 2006, ironically at the expense of Oxford.
