Chronicled: The History of NUFC | Episode 5: 1905-09: Third League title in five years

Episode 5 of our history series 'Chronicled: The History of NUFC covers 1905 to 1909.

This is possibly the most successful period in the club's 140-year history. They win three league titles and reach three FA Cup finals (then known as the English Cup). Sadly, they were never able to return home from London with the biggest prize in English football thanks to the 'Crystal Palace curse'.

Theme music by Tom Ramsey.
