They won promotion in there first season but suffered relegation immediately. They then changed their name to Glossop (to avoid any confusion with Preston North End) before spending their one and only season in the top flight. They resigned from the League in 1915 and were replaced by Stoke. Glossop is the smallest town in England to have supported a top-flight club. The first fixture between the two clubs came at Molineux on 23 September 1899 and Wolves ran out comfertable winners 4-0 thanks to goals from Tom Worton, Billy Beats with a brace and late strike from Jack Miller.
