STOKE CITY have been presented with a commemorative plaque by the Football League to mark the Club's 125-year status as founder members.

The memorial celebrates the Potters' involvement in the establishment of The Football League in 1888.

He said: "As a Club, we are proud and honoured to be founder members of the oldest professional football league in the world.

"I would like to thank The Football League for marking the occasion with a plaque that will forever recognise the history and heritage of both the Football League and Stoke City."
