    The City of Sheffield was a major centre of footballing development , and its influence on the evolution of the Association game cannot be overlooked.  There were Sheffield men present in the England XI right from the very start. Charlie Clegg played in the 5th 'Alcock International' and also in the first official international in 1872. Clegg, who went on to be a massively influential administrator, later complained about the snooty attitude of his southern teammates. 
    During the 19th century 7 Sheffield based clubs had players capped by England:

    Reverend John Robert Blayney Owen


    Jack Hunter - in the 7 internationals in which he played England won only once and conceded 31 goals! He went on to lead Blackburn Olympic to FA Cup victory, being largely responsible for the professional approach they took to the game. 


    Billy Mosforth-The Little Wonder, often described as England's first working class player (more on this matter in the near future) and the first player to represent both Wednesday and Sheffield United.

    United's first international- Harry Lilley

     Michael Whitham


    Raby Howell- the first Roma to play for England.

    When Genoa Cricket & Athletic Club won the first of its national championships in 1898 it retained many features of its origins as an English institution. The club jerseys for example, were white, and the manager was an Englishman- Dr James Richardson Spensley.  Dr Spensley's association with the club began in  1897, effectively heralding its beginnings as a serious football club (from the foundation in 1893 the football had been casual, secondary to cricket and athletics). Initially membership of the club had been open only to Englishmen (I'm assuming this covered all Britons), but by 1898 there was a more cosmopolitain air- the championship winning side being made up as follows:

    William Baird

  • 08/26/14--14:24: Hirsch and Fuchs



  • Julius Hirsch and Gottfried Fuchs, the 2 Jewish footballers who represented Germany. During the Third Reich era Fuchs went into exile and Hirsch was murdered at Auschwitz.
    The memory of these 2 remarkable men has been kept alive by historian Werner Skrentny, and the city of Karlsruhe has a Gottfried-Fuchs-Platz and a Julius-Hirsch-Straße.  The DFB's Julius Hirsch Prize honours those who promote freedom , tolerance and humanity.

    Their finest hour for Karlsruher FV came in 1910- winning the German National Championship.
    The Karlsruher FV team who beat Holsten Kiel on 15.05.10 was:
    Adolf Dell – Carl Hübner, Ernst Hollstein – Hans Ruzek, Max Breunig, Max Schwarze – Fritz TscherterFritz FördererGottfried FuchsJulius HirschHermann Bosch
    Trainer: William Townley

    Max Bruenig scored the winner from the penalty spot in the 114th minute at Köln.

    It was in 1912 that Hirsch and Fuchs first played together for the German national team.  On 04.03.12 
    at Zwolle Netherlands and Germany played a 5-5 draw. Fuchs scored Germany's first goal in the 13th minute, but Juller was the star of the show, scoring 4 goals. 


    26.05.12- in a repeat of the 1910 final Holstein Kiel beat Karlsruher FV 1-0 (a penalty) at Hamburg. 

    They next featured together in the consolation round of Olympic tournament on 03.07.12, 2 days after Fuchs scored 10 goals in a 16-0 demolition of Russia , Hirsch returned to the side for the match with Hungary. Hungary won 3-1 (an Imre Sclosser hat trick).


    Hirsch and Fuchs final appearance together for Germany came  on 23.11.13. at Antwerp. Belgium thrashed Germany 6-2. Fuchs got Germany's second, but Belgium had already scored 5 by then. 

    In all Julius Hirsch played 7 internationals, scoring 4 goals.
    Gottfried Fuchs played 6 matches for the national team, scoring 14 goals.

                                                  Fuchs seated far left, Hirsch far right.

    The journalist Jimmy Catton claimed to have seen Andy Aitken penning an acceptance speech on the eve of the 1905 Final.
    Catton also offered the explanation that rather than simply being serial chokers, Newcastle were hampered by the lush surface at Crystal Palace, more so than other teams because they were particularly reliant on pinging short fast passes and also because the St James' Park pitch was virtually grassless by comparison. The players themselves were notably superstitious, believing that passing a wedding on the way to the ground would guarantee a victory, whereas seeing a funeral meant defeat!

  • 09/01/14--14:10: There's no 'I' in 'team'?
  • It may be apocryphal, but a lovely story anyhow. Professionalism is still 6 years off, and the England team is still dominated by the old Public Schoolboys and 'Varsity men. Combination play has yet to replace the old dribbling style. 
    The place, Kennington Oval.
    England v Scotland, March 3rd 1877.
    The principals, Alfred Lyttelton and Billy Mosforth.



    Alfred 
    Lyttelton
    Cambridge University, Member of Parliament, Queen's Counsel, Secretary of State for the Colonies.
    An England Test cricketer and a superb field athlete and racquet sportsman.Lyttelton was a strapping 6ft 1 (1.85m) , and learned his football playing the Eton game. 




    Billy Mosforth

    One of the first England internationals to rely on a trade for his income, Mosforth was an engraver, and later a publican. 
    A proto professional who turned out for 8 different Sheffield based clubs (Albion, The Wednesday, Zulus, Hallam, Rovers, Heeley, Lockwood Brothers and United) and was said to follow the money even in the days when professionalism was still outlawed. 
    An all round sportsman, a runner and hurdler and a good club cricketer
    There were physical differences in the classes in Victorian England, which were often in evidence when teams from the industrial north met opponents from the south- and Mosforth (5 ft 4- 1.63m) being 9 inches (22cms) shorter than Lyttleton is an example of this. 

    Sheffield had taken to the combination game in the early 70s, possibly influenced by the play of the Royal Engineers. The Sheffield offside rule had also been more conducive to a passing game. Mosforth was a noted exponent of the new skill- the screw shot. He was also a very accurate crosser of the ball. 
    Lyttelton  was a heads down and charge dribbler. At some point during the game , which England lost 3-1, Mosforth apparently became very annoyed at Lyttelton's selfish approach, and, unabashed by the barriers of class, let his teammate know it. We don't know what form Mosforth's admonishment took. Yorkshiremen are notoriously blunt.

    Lyttelton's reply, or at least the reply he is alleged to have made, has survived.
    I play, sir, for my own pleasure.

    When the football season ended by May 1st and didn't resume until September there was a lot more scope for men to play both sports at the highest level.  A number of England internationals were also first class cricketers. The tradition began in the earliest years of the Association- men like Alcock, the Lyttletons, Cuthbert Ottaway and Monty Betts were top class performers in both sports. The increasing engagement of the proletariat in top level sports saw players such as Jack Devey, Ernest Needham, Harry Daft and William Foulke playing countycricket as well as football, whilst the old Public Schools' tradition was maintained by the likes of G.O Smith and Pinky Burnup.
    Between 1872 and 1937 only 10 men represented England at both football and cricket.

    Prior to the Federation of Australia in 1901 there were six separate colonies (QueenslandNew South WalesVictoria,TasmaniaSouth Australia, and Western Australia).
    Victoria had it's own local code of football rules (Victoria Rules now known as Australian Rules) codified in 1859, thus predating the Association Football (1863) , Rugby Union (1871), American 'football' (1873) and Gaelic Football (1887).
    Association football was played in Tasmania, New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland from the late 1870s and early 1880s.
    The first Inter Colonial matches were played in 1883. Here is an account of the first match. Note the explanation of the mode of play and the low attendance. 




    FOOTBALL.
    VICTORIA V. NEW SOUTH WALES.    
    An intercolonial football match under the British Association rules, between teams representing Victoria and New South Wales,was played yesterday on the East Melbourne cricket-ground. This game has only quiterecently been introduced here, the chief merit claimed for it by the promoters beingthat there is less rough play than under the Victorian rules, and that its general adoption would afford the opportunity for international matches with British teams. The main principle of the game is that with the exception of the goalkeeper on either side, no player is permitted to handle either the ball or his opponents, although he maybutt the ball in an inelegant way with his head. The drop-kicking and marking, together with the skilful system of exchanging little marks that have so popularised the Victorian game, are entirely wanting.If the game is apparently less rough to an observer, the element of danger is not wanting, and when a number of players come  together, all kicking at the ball, some nasty bruises are received. A spiteful player has also a chance of seriously injuring an opponent without his motives being suspected - a thing that could scarcely happen under the Victorian rules. The Victorian eleven - who appeared in light blue uniforms,while their opponents wore dark blue colours -were captained by Kier, Eaves leading the New South Wales team. The former won the toss, and kicked down the ground, having a strong wind blowing in their favour. For the first 20 minutes the Victorians kept the ball around their opponents' goal posts, but could not manage to score. The Sydney men then took it forward, and after some good play on the part of Richardson and Kerr, the latter put the ball through with his head.During this part of the game the kicking was rather wild, and one of the incidents of the  play was a combatant kicking at the ball, and striking a spectator outside the rink. The most interesting part of the game was the skill shown by the players in dribbling the ball; this, indeed, being the only attractive point in the display. In the second half the Sydney men again started well, and Eaves kicked a second goal for them; but after this  Victoria prevailed, and through the good play of Ware and Almond two goals were secured for that side in quick succession by Riddell and Teare. The Victorian players had several other good chances of scoring, but they were not accepted, and the game ended in a draw, each side scoring two goals. Mr. W. Bisike acted as referee, and Messrs. Niven and Schuler us umpires. About 200 people witnessed the match.

    United played in a white strip with a red chevron.


    The toss, the captains were the two great centre halves, Charlie Roberts and Billy Wedlock. Referee Mr Jim Mason.


    A great view of Crystal Palace as the game gets underway. Note the 2-3-5 formations.


     Sandy Turnbull scores for United. Turnbull was later implicated in the 1915 Betting Scandal and was  banned for life from football. Turnbull was killed in action in Arras (1917). His life ban was posthumously rescinded by the Football Association in 1919 (!).

    German clubs are very fond of including their foundation date in their official titles. In the case of Turn- und Sportverein München von 1860, this date could be seen as a bit misleading. The Turnverein München of 1860 was a gymnastic club (Germany experienced something of a mania for gymnastics in the mid 19th century). In fact the club did not play football until 1899, and didn't play fixtures against other clubs until 1902.

  • 09/25/14--12:17: Stephen Smith


  • These were the days before agents and transfer deadline day dramas. Steve Smith was working nights in a coal mine in Cannock Chase and playing for Hednesford Town. Aston Villa financial secretary Frederick Rinder travelled to the pit and reputedly secured Smith's signature underground. 
    Outside left Smith was at Villa for 8 years and made 1 England appearance.

  • 09/26/14--09:26: Combinado del Pacifico


  • Another ambitious intercontinental tour from the 1930s saw a squad made up from 3 leading Peruvian clubs, supplemented by 3 players from Colo-Colo in Chile, travel to Europe. Colo Colo had toured Europe in 1927, tragically losing  David Arellano.
    The 1933 tourists, generally known as Combinado del Pacifico , played 40 matches across 12 countries. Their fortunes were very mixed.

  • 09/27/14--15:45: FC St. Gallen



  • St Gallen FC, founded in April 1879,  claims to be the oldest club in continental Europe. The club was founded by young businessmen who had been exposed to football when they studied with English students. 
    Although the members played almost daily, the early years saw only casual football and an idiosyncratic set of hybrid rules. It was in 1892 that St Gallen's first documented fixture took place- a visit from Grasshopper Club Zürich, who protested that the goals used in St Gallen were far smaller than the regulation size. The return match in Zurich saw Grasshopper win 6-0 (they had won 1-0 with the mini goals at St Gallen). Following this fixture St Gallen adopted the standard sized goals. 
    The club first featured in Swiss Championship in 1899-1900 (the 3rd edition) under their temporary guise of United FC St. Gallen, but finished bottom of their group. They were champions in 1904, a feat they did not repeat for 96  years.

  • 09/29/14--14:27: Gandhi
  •  When Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi became involved in Civil Rights and anti racism in South Africa he recognized the populist force of football. In 1913 he organized football  in Natal for the Indian community. In this photograph Gandhi is circled.

    First published in 1909, this 90 page booklet was volume 18 in a series on sports and games. The title rather charmingly translates as Football Without Picking Up The Ball. Author Johannes Scharfe was a pioneer of football in Silesia , secretary of VfB Leipzig and director of the Leipzig Football Association. Herr Scharfe was also a referee. 
    The cover photograph appears to show Slavia Prague in action.
