Port Vale and Arsenal. Whether Arsenal were originally Woolwich Arsenal isn't really relevant, as it's what they're named now and in the fact that they no longer play in Woolwich. So Arsenal have no geographical reference in their name.

The answer is Port Vale. The question was 'Only one English league club has never been named after a geographical location - which one?', I even underlined the word 'never'.

Over to you HH

Apologies. I misread the question.

However:

When and where was the first match under floodlights played in England ?

'

On 4th November 1878 Blackburn Rovers played its first floodlit game.

"The visitors were Accrington and the ground was illuminated by the Gramme light - one being situated at the east end of the Meadows and the other at the west end. Each light was attached to a scaffold that rose some 30 to 40ft from the ground. An 8hp portable engine was required to work the battery and it was said that the system provided the equivalent of some 6,000 candle power. However, it was felt necessary to paint the ball white to aid both players and spectators." :)

I am pretty sure my answer above is correct. If it's not my apologies.

In the meantime here's a quickie to keep the quiz flowing:-

What was introduced because of an incident which happened in 1891 during a match between Stoke and Aston Villa. Trailing 1–0 and with just two minutes remaining, Stoke were awarded a penalty. Villa's goalkeeper kicked the ball out of the ground, and by the time the ball had been recovered, the 90 minutes had elapsed and the game was over ?
