Rotherham County F.C.


Rotherham County F.C.

Rotherham County Football Club was an English football club based in the town of Rotherham, Yorkshire. The club founded in 1864, joined the Midland League in 1903, and stayed in that competition until it was abandoned for World War I. They won the Midland League title for four consecutive seasons, from 1911-12 to 1914-15 inclusive.

After the War, they were elected to the Football League when the league expanded from 40 clubs to 44 in 1919. In 1925 they merged with local rivals Rotherham Town (who had spent three years in the Football League in the 1890s), to form Rotherham United who are still members of the Football League.
