Members of the Deanery FC, which had been established by schoolteachers in 1880, were largely responsible for the formation of Southampton Football Club. Most of the founders were connected with the young men's association of St Mary's Church. In November 1885 the club was named Southampton St Mary's at the inaugural meeting, and the church curate was elected president. It was not until two years later, 1897, that the St Mary's reference was omitted from the club name. Southampton's only major domestic success to date is the F.A Cup in 1976. They were league runners-up in 1984.
