1878-1902 Newton Heath

...
In 1878, on the northeast side of the city of Manchester, in a suburb where rugby was the main focus on sport, an association football team by the name of Newton Heath (LYR) was born.
...
In the following year Newton Heath made their first appearance in the Lancashire Association Cup, beating Haydock Temperance 4 - 0, and in 1885 were runners-up in the final to Hurst. They became a renowned cup team of the time. Reaching the final seven times in the next 8 years, winning on 5 occasions. The team also won the Manchester Cup in 1888.
With the onset of professionalism in 1885 the Football League was instituted in 1888. Newton Heath took full advantage of the new laws and introduced a number of new faces to the team, many of them Welshmen, who also found jobs in the wagon works. Newton Heath joined the Football Alliance in 1889 - the basis of the second division.
There was an increasingly large turn out to see Newton Heath's home games during this time, with attendances reaching more than 2,000. A stand was erected in 1891 which held 1,000 fans, but still improvements were required and money needed.
The club finished as runners-up in the 1891-2 season and with the expansion of the football league, Newton Heath was elected to the League for the following season. That season they finished bottom of Division One, but beat Small Heath in a 'test match' to remain in the top division, with Small Heath continuing in Division 2. That season, though, Newton Heath did win the Manchester Cup against Bolton.
...
Having struggled in their first season in Division One, Newton Heath continued in the same vain the following season, and was again forced to take part in a test match to stay up. They played Liverpool and lost, the Merseysiders taking their place in Division One. A year later, having finished third in Division 2, they failed to return to the top flight after losing the vital test match against Stoke.
Despite being unable to return to the top flight things were not all that bad for Newton Heath, and the team won the Lancashire Cup for the first time in 1898, beating Blackburn 2-1.
...
Things were looking bad for Newton Heath off the field, and in early 1902 they were £2,270 in debt. The creditors moved in and the first major financial crisis hit the club. It proved to be the end of Newton Heath, and the birth of Manchester United.
