Scottish FA secretary William Dick was in the process of arranging a  tour to Canada when he died in 1880. This was the year in which David Forsyth had been instrumental in founding the The Western Football Association of Ontario, the force behind Canadian representative football in the Victorian era. 


Eight years later The Western Association toured the British Isles and on the evening of 18.09.88 'Canada' met a 'Team of Scotland' at The Glasgow Exhibition Grounds (Kelvingrove Park).
