Birmingham St. George's F.C. were a football club based in Birmingham, England. They were formerly known as Mitchell St. George's F.C., a merger of Mitchells and St. George's in 1881, changing to their new name in 1888. They were among the founding members of the Combination in 1888, finishing 10th out of 12, and provided the Combination with its president, Mr. H. Mitchell. The Combination disbanded after a season. They applied to become members of the Football League at the end of its first season but failed to gain membership; they received the most votes of the non-elected clubs, two behind Notts County. In 1889 they were founder members of the Football Alliance, also reaching the quarter finals of the FA Cup. The Alliance combined with the Football League in 1892 with Birmingham St. George's becoming the only member not to be accepted. As Aston Villa and Small Heath Alliance began dominating the Birmingham footballing landscape, the club disbanded in 1892 because of financial difficulties.
