History

League and Cup record

Pork spent seven seasons in division VI.513 before winning automatic promotion to V.217. After just two seasons there, they auto-promoted into division IV.52, where they spent three seasons in upper mid-table before winning the league to seal auto-promotion to III.10. The furthest they have advanced in the English Cup to date is Round 8. One curious statistic about the club is that, despite now being in its 14th season of existence, it has never taken part in a qualifier match.

Players

Ben Wyco

One of the most notable players to have featured for Pork City is Ben Wyco. Pulled from the club's youth system into the first team squad just days after he turned 17, Ben went on to be called up for the England U-20 side, for whom he made 6 appearances in the U-20 World Cup XII. After continuing to be trained at Pork City, several seasons later he received a call-up for the full England national team, for whom he has made 16 appearance to date. He remains an integral part of both the Pork City and England NT squads.

Others

Another Pork player with a history in the England national set-up was Alexander Norman. Bought for a club record £3.6m, Norman had 5 caps for the full National Team and 2 caps for the U-20 team, but was subsequently sold on for £3.9m. Pork's current squad also boasts midfielder Alireza Ghomsheii, who has turned out 19 times for the Iranian U20 side.
