Crusaders biggest rivals are Cliftonvillewith whom they contest the North Belfast derby.
Players were compelled to pay a match fee of two pence before they could take the field; a strict "no pay, no play" club policy was enforced.
The very first competitive game of which there is any existing written record was on 10 December It came in the North Belfast Alliance against opponents named Bedford at Alexandra Park and the report states that, "after a splendid game Crusaders won by 5 to 2.
Crusaders went on to compete in the Dunville Alliance, Ormeau Junior Alliance, Alexandra Alliance, Woodvale Alliance and Irish Football Alliance the latter of which they won three years in a row from — until their election to the Irish Intermediate League in The Crues rapidly became one of the top intermediate sides in the country, and won an impressive collection of trophies, including the Intermediate League championship six times in ten years from — The side also reached the Irish Cup semi finals three times in the s.
The first came in the —24 season, where they were defeated by that season's Irish League champions Queen's Island in a replay at Pirrie Park.
In the —25 season the Crues knocked out senior sides Larne and Belfast Celtic before being halted by Glentoran at The Oval in the semi finals who also went on to be champions that year.
They reached the semi-finals once again in , losing 2—4 at home to derby rivals Cliftonville. The Crues also reached the final of the Belfast Charities Cup in losing to Glentoran , also an impressive achievement as the competition was open to all senior clubs in Belfast and the surrounding area.
Despite these feats, repeated applications for entry to the senior Irish League were turned down. The frustration at the club was such that serious consideration was given to making membership applications either to the Scottish Football League or to the League of Ireland.
However, the Second World War intervened and no football at all was played by the Crues between April and September Crusaders began competing once more in the Intermediate League after the war, beginning with the —46 season.
Crusaders won the —49 Intermediate League with a record number of points, and coupled with the vacancy created by the dramatic withdrawal of Belfast Celtic from the senior ranks in , Crusaders were finally elected to the senior Irish League in time for the start of the —50 season.
Morrison was the club's top scorer of their first senior season with 11 goals in all competitions. The Crues' first league match took place on 26 November, a 1—4 defeat to Linfield at Windsor Park , and their first victory came on 10 December away to Ballymena United by 3—1, but the side would have to wait until 1 April for the first league win at Seaview, with a 4—1 victory over Glenavon.
The season was tough going for the 'Hatchetmen', as they were also known, and they had to apply for re-election after finishing in 11th place out of 12 clubs.
As has always been the case, however, Crusaders never lacked determination. On 17 May they participated in their first senior final, the Festival of Britain Cup final, which they lost 0—3 to Ballymena United.
Under the player-managership of Jackie Vernon they recovered to win their first senior trophy in the —54 season by defeating Linfield 2—1 in the final of the Ulster Cup.
The s were not easy in spite of the presence in the side of some excellent individuals and the end of the —58 season saw another application for re-election.
The decade also saw the emergence of Curry Mulholland , who represented the club from until , setting a goalscoring record of which would not be beaten until the s.
The s brought much more success. On 17 May they won the County Antrim Shield for the first time, repeating the feat in with a 6—0 victory over Larne this was the joint-biggest margin of victory in the final of the competition until Linfields 9—1 victory over Bangor in With Jimmy Murdough as coach they also picked up another Ulster Cup final win on 1 October , with a reply victory of 1—0 over Glenavon.
These successes were overshadowed by two unexpected victories in the Irish Cup finals of and against the might of Glentoran and Linfield respectively.
Also in , they narrowly missed out on winning the Blaxnit Cup and becoming champions of all of Ireland , losing 3—4 on aggregate to Shamrock Rovers.
The s also saw the emergence of some of the greatest players in Crusaders' history, such as Albert Campbell , who was the club's most capped international player until surpassed by Colin Coates , Danny Trainor , Joe Meldrum, Walter McFarland and Danny Hale, who scored an incredible goals in just four seasons, including a club record of 55 goals in the —66 season , which still stands to this day.
Jimmy Todd had won the second of those Irish Cups with the side in , however by the early s the Crues had declined slightly as the side of the s broke up.
Todd was replaced with Billy Johnston in early , and he set about restructuring the squad. Under Johnston unprecedented success was to follow, with the Irish League championship trophy finding a home at Seaview in —73 , with the attacking duo of Tommy Finney and Jackie Fullerton scoring 47 goals between them.
The club also set a record of going through the whole league campaign unbeaten at home, a feat which was repeated 40 years later in the —13 season. This led to the club's first ever participation in the European Cup , in which they faced Dinamo Bucharest and had the misfortune of setting the record for a defeat in that competition, losing 0—11 in the away leg on 3 October Questions and Comments.

Crusaders had a great win on Tuesday night when they defeated Coleraine at Seaview. A superb team performance will leave Stephen Baxter with hopefully an easy choice to make and possibly the same starting XI could take the field unless injury could see a change.
Aidan Wilson is available with Rodney Brown possibly missing through injury. Stephen may look to change the midfield should he feel that a fresh set of legs are needed but those that played last time out did not do anything wrong and could be retained.
Up front Adam Lecky, Jordan Owens and Jamie McGonigle have formed a good relationship and they may all start if tactics are not changed.
The team will be told not to dwell on the defeat from a few weeks ago and play like they did on Tuesday night and the result will come.
Larne are unbeaten so far in the Premiership with three wins and two draws but with big expections at Inver they need to be on top of their game every week.
Tiernan Lynch has assembled a big squad on big money and they are riding high at the minute. Larne of course are peppered with ex Crusaders players and they will also be out to prove a point.
So all set for a good game in front of the live BBC Sport cameras. We know you can't be with us due to restrictions so we ask you tune in, get the Crusaders colours on and give us your support in spirit.
The game kicks off at 5. Have you already signed up? To register your entry, simply make a purchase with your favourite retailer through the Fantastic Fanatics website.

The game had a quiet start and the first real action happened in the 7th minute when Chris Hegarty blocked a Ben Doherty shot on goal. Panic in the Coleraine defence a minute later led to a corner and from that corner Gareth Deane in the Coleraine goal made a wonder save from a Philip Lowry header when he somehow clawed the ball back from under the bar.
Both defences where on top and Billy Joe Burns cleared a free kick with his head while at the the other end Lyndon Kane did well as Crusaders threatened.
On 20 minutes Curtis Allens tamely hit shot was aved by Sean O'Neill and five minutes later Jamie McGonigle and Jordan Owens fluffed their shot seconds after each other as Crusaders started to turn the screw.
Lyndon Kane again denied Jamie McGonigle a shooting chance as the half hour approached and Crusaders had a let off ten minutes before half time when a goalmouth scramble saw the ball cleared for a Coleraine corner.
Stephen Lowry went close from the corner when his shot was deflected wide and the half ended with Coleraine s Stephen O'Donnell defending well as Philip Lowry waited to pounce.
With that the half ended The second half was only started when a Jamie McGonigle whipped in cross caused problems but Gareth Deane in goals did just enough to put off Jordan Owens.
Again both sides went head to head but produced little to bother the goalkeepers with Billy Joe Burns going closest but his shot still went wide.
Coleraine won a free kick after 56 minutes 25 yards out and it was Sean O'Neills turn to impress when he got down well to right hand post to save Eoin Bradleys set piece.
Crusaders claims for a penalty when Adam Lecky was fouled where turned away while Lyndon Kane was on hand again to clear with Jordan Owens ready to head goalwards.
Crusaders kept plugging away and Coleraine kept them at arms length. Jordan Owens was all over the pitch and he did brilliantly in defence when he headed clear with Coleraine giving it a real go.
Crusaders though came back at Coleraine and on 71 minutes they where rewarded with what turned out to be the winning goal.
Sub David Cushley was unlucky when he just failed to catch a volley correctly on 82 minutes as Crusaders began to protect their lead the game played out and on the whistle Crusaders had won with a superb team performance.
So three massive points and a performance that will have pleased the management and supporters alike.
Focus now turns to Saturday and the trip to play Larne at Inver Park 5. Jarlath O'Rourke. Crusaders go into the game of the back of a great win over Ballymena United where the second half performance proved to be the best 45 minutes of the season so far.
Stephen Baxters message will be more of the same and hopefully that will be what will happen. Coleraine will want to come straight back after a draw with Glenavon on Saturday.
Definitely missing will be defender Gareth McConaghie who was sent off on Saturday and it will mean a reshuffle at the back for Oran Kearneys team.
Also missing is Eoin Bardley who still serves a suspension. Coleraine still have plenty of players who can change a game. Stephen Lowry is in fine form and Stewart Nixon has made a great start to his Coleraine career.
Curtis Allen if picked will be the man that Crusaders will have to keep an eye on while Ben Doherty will also pose problems. So all set for another Danske Bank Premiership battle.
Due to Covid restrictions there will be a vastly reduced capacity in Seaview but you can watch on Sky Sports at home. Kick off is 7. C'monthe Crues and Keep The Faith.
The competition will get underway on 9 January and involve the 24 clubs from the Premiership and Championship.
The Intermediate Cup semi-finalists and the next four teams in the league pyramid will also compete.
Those final four places will be awarded to the teams ranked highest in last season's league pyramid based on points per game.
The committee said it had assessed the "ongoing impact of the Covid pandemic on the early rounds of the Irish Challenge Cup" and unanimously decided to reduce the number of participants in the competition to 32 clubs.
Last season the Irish Cup attracted teams, made up of senior clubs and intermediate clubs, however the committee said today's decision to reduce the number of participating clubs this season was "in the best interests of the competition and with the current social and health situation in mind".
It also said it hoped to return to the traditional cup format in the season. The traditional format sees intermediate sides compete in four rounds before being joined by the 24 senior clubs in the last 32 fifth round.
It was the proverbial game of twp halves at todays game when Crusaders travelled to Ballymena Showgrounds to play Ballymena United.
Going in one down at half time ehatever was said in the break worked and a storming second half by Crusaders could not have been any different to that of the first.
The first piece of action in the first half came on 4 minutes when Jamie McGonigle had a shot tipped round the post by Ross Glendinning.
It was Jamie McGonigle again who had Crusaders next attempt on goal but his chip over Glendinning this time was cleared for a corner.
Adam Lecky missed a great chance to score against his old club when he blazed over the bar from 6 yards and it proved costly when United took the lead just four minutes later.
Ex Crusaders player Paul McElroy took a ball in his stride and calmly slotted home from 15 yards to put the home side ahead and Crusaders where playing catch up.
Crusaders started to control the game and they where close to an equaliser but Jamie McGonigles shot was saved.
As the clock ticked towards 40 minutes United went close with a header while Philip Lowry had a shot blocked that looked to be going in.
