The Football League is 120 years old today. From The Football League website:

The lack of structure to the football landscape in 1888 meant that many matches were being cancelled due to bad weather, injuries or lack of transport. With fixture cards being rendered virtually meaningless William McGregor, a Midlands based draper and a Director of Aston Villa, set about making changes.

Little did he know the impact he would have on English and Welsh football.
