Stoke became the first club to drop out of  the Football League when they failed in their bid for re-election at the end of the 1889/90 season, losing their place to Sunderland without a vote being taken. They spent one season in the Football Alliance, finishing as champions, before being elected back into an enlarged Football League (1890/91 Football Alliance table and voting details).

After finishing in a mid-table position Stoke resigned from the Football League at the end of 1907/08. However they then changed their mind but had to take part in the vote for League membership in which they lost out to Tottenham (voting). They were re-elected to the Football League from the Southern League Second Division at the end of the 1914/15 season (table and voting details) but could not take up their place until 1919/20 because of the First World War.
