Nowich City won more matches in the league in 2010 than any other club in English professional football, and those 27 victories put them in No1 place in our composite table of Football League clubs for the calendar year. (See below).

The table does not distinguish between divisions, counting only the total number of wins, draws and defeats in Football League games for the 67 teams who spent the whole of 2010 somewhere within the Championship, League One or League Two.

The records of clubs in the Premier League can be seen here.

Our Football League table speaks for itself, but here are some of the other notable achievements of the year that aren’t obvious from our stats alone.
