    Abstract

    The deduction of points by a league as a sanction against a club has a long history. The earliest recorded examples found during research for this project were the deduction of two points by The Combination against Wrexham in 1890, and a similar deduction against Grimsby Town by the Football Alliance the following year, immediately before the latter metamorphosed into the second division of the Football League.
