Might as well give it a bash versus Bolton. Nothing else we do seems to be enough to best them.

interesting that they numbered the players as according to the England online  website the 1st time England wore shirt numbers was 4 years later in another trial game against the rest at fratton park .

It was the first international trial held in Sheffield since the 1906/07 season and drew many famous Sheffield faces, England won 4-3.

 

Sheffield Wedneaday’s Allen was the leading scorer in the first division and missed out on a place in the Rest due to a twisted ankle. Strange and Keane from the Rest obviously also with Wednesday connections and Blenkinsopp for England.

 

Chadder was quite the sensation in those days, as were the amateur Corinthians team. He is regarded as one of the best amateurs ever. It was reported that a professional club was willing to pay thousands to secure his services had he wished to have become a paid professional but he refused. He was fairly new to football, having been a rugby man he played rugby for Oxford, where he was convinced to try football. He captained the Rest team, having been capped the week prior for the England team versus the Rest in another trial.

 

Want to know anything else @@owlstalk?

Remember when England played wednesday at Hillsborough for the Eric Taylor testimonial. 

England put an almost full team out that night. We lost 5-0. Me and dad sat in the Cantilever. Can't remember the year. Some time in the 70s maybe?
