Burnley ended the season in 11th position with a record of 4 wins, 5 draws and 13 defeats. As a result, the club was forced to apply for re-election to the League for the following season; the application was successful and Burnley retained their berth for the 1890–91 campaign. Burnley lost eight consecutive matches between 9 November 1889 and 22 February 1890 and did not achieve their first win in the League until 1 March 1890, when they beat Bolton Wanderers 7–0. The team was knocked out by Sheffield United in the First Round of the FA Cup, but they had success in the Lancashire Senior Cup, beating Rossendale United, Higher Walton and Haydock on the way to the final, where they defeated rivals Blackburn Rovers by two goals to nil.
