In 1888-89, Preston North End made history by becoming the first known football team to go through an entire league season undefeated. This was an impressive accomplishment considering the lack of knowledge and resources available to football teams back then.

After playing 22 games, they ended the season with an impressive 18 wins and 4 draws, giving them a total of 40 points. Every match was a nail-biting experience and each member of the team worked tirelessly for the wins. Every one of their hard work and dedication paid off, making it one of the most memorable seasons.

After a hard-fought battle, Aston Villa was able to come out on top and earn the automatic promotion they had been aiming for. Wolverhampton Wanderers also performed admirably and had a great run that saw them earn a respectable third place. The two teams had plenty of memorable moments over the course of the season and the result was certainly well-deserved.
Preston's John Goodall has had an extraordinary season, having become the top scorer of the league with 21 goals. Goodall's season was nothing short of spectacular and his outstanding performances left opponents dazed. The amazing total of 21 goals that he scored made sure his team secured the title in the most convincing way possible.
That same season, they completed the double at the FA Cup had finally. Fans filled Wembley Stadium as Preston North End stepped onto the pitch to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers. The team's hunger and determination was evident in their every move as they dominated the game with fluid play.

The jubilant crowd rose to their feet in celebration of the impressive double success for Arsenal.
In the FA Cup, they played five games, scoring 11 goals and conceding none.
While Preston North End went down in history for this great feat, the feat itself stood for so much more than just a championship for the team.
