Carlisle are currently the smallest club, in terms of the population it represents, to have played top flight Football in the last 100 years. that was a solitary season back in the mid 1970s when the club even managed to top the League in the early stages. The rest of the club's history has been that of a lower division outfit, gaining election to the League in 1928 and going on to secure their first Cupset of a top flight team in 1968, when they were among the stronger sides in the second tier. As fate would have it, Carlisle's sole top flight season saw them become victims of a cupset themselves.
