Maik Taylor, the club's most capped player

Birmingham City Football Club, then known as Small Heath Alliance, first entered the FA Cup in the 1881–82 season. When nationally organised league football in England began, the club, by then called simply Small Heath F.C., was a founder member of the Football Alliance, formed the year after the Football League. In 1892, the Football League decided to form a Second Division, inviting the members of the Football Alliance to join; as one of the less successful members, Small Heath were placed in the Second Division. Since that time the club's first team has competed in numerous nationally and internationally organised competitions, and all players who have played in 100 or more such matches are listed below.

Frank Womack holds the record for Birmingham league appearances, having played 491 matches between 1908 and 1928, closely followed by Gil Merrick with 485 between 1946 and 1959. If all senior competitions are included, Merrick has 551, followed by Womack's 515 which is the record for an outfield player.[1] As of the end of the 2011–12 season, the player who has won most international caps while at the club is Maik Taylor with 58 for Northern Ireland.[2]

The goalscoring record is held by Joe Bradford, with 249 league goals, and 267 in total, scored between 1920 and 1935. No other player comes close; Trevor Francis is the nearest with 119 league goals, 133 in total, scored between 1970 and 1979.[3] Bradford holds the record for league goals scored in a top-flight season with 29 in the First Division in 1927–28.[4]

Key[edit]

  • The list is ordered first by number of appearances in total, then by number of League appearances, and then if necessary by date of debut.
  • Appearances as a substitute are included.
  • Statistics are correct up to and including the end of the 2013–14 season. Where a player left the club permanently after this date, his statistics are updated to his date of leaving.

International selection

  • Countries are listed only for players who have been selected for international football. Only the highest level of international competition is given, except where a player competed for more than one country, in which case the highest level reached for each country is shown.
  • For players having played at full international level, the caps column counts the number of such appearances during his career with the club. All information relating to international selection, including number of full caps won while with the club, is sourced to Matthews (2010), pp. 498–502, unless otherwise noted.
