Did you know?

         North Ferriby United Football Club was formed in 1934.

         They first took part in the local East Riding Church League and in 1938 won the Division One title

         After the Second World War the club were admitted to the East Riding Amateur League.  The immediate post-war years proved to be very successful with the highlight being an appearance in the final qualifying round of the F.A. Amateur Cup during the 1949/50 campaign

         The 1980/81 season was indeed a momentous one.  They reached the lofty heights of the F.A. Cup Third Qualifying Round, losing away to Boston United.

         1996/97 saw the villagers achieve the ambition of every English Club with an appearance at Wembley Stadium.  A 3-1 aggregate victory over Guisborough Town in the semi-final saw them through to the F.A. Carlsberg Vase Final on Saturday 19th May 1997. A 3-0 defeat by Whitby Town only partially marred their great day and their name is now proudly entered in the record books.

         Season 2005/06 saw the club at the highest level in their history as they entered the Unibond Premier Division and led the table from the off until March.  Despite missing out on automatic promotion, the club came close to joining Champions Blyth Spartans in the Conference North as they secured a place in the promotion play-offs thanks to a fifth place finish.  They defeated third placed Frickley Athletic away from home before losing the final by the odd goal in three at Farsley Celtic after extra time.

         The 2012-13 season was the most successful in the Club's history. The side completed the League and Cup double and won the East Riding Senior Cup. Coincidentally, the side emulated the 2004-05 performance of leading the table from early October to the end of the season. The team also equalled a long-standing Premier Division record by winning 16 away games. Ferriby became only the third team to retain the League Cup and the fifth to complete the NPL Title and Cup double.
