Diary

Thursday, 20 February 1873 - The second trial match for the selection of the English XI, to compete against the Scotch team was played this afternoon on the Surrey Cricket Ground, and the players, ten members of Wanderers FC, against "ten candidates", representing Oxford and Cambridge Universities, King's College, Crystal Palace, First Surrey Rifles, Clapham Pilgrims, etc. The Wanderers were under the supervision of A.F. Kinnaird. Their captain, C.W. Alcock, through an accident, being unable to compete, officiated as umpire, whilst the Candidates were ably commanded by D. Allport, captain of the Crystal Palace club. Owing to the heavy state of the ground the stamina of the different competitors was severely tested, and several of them came to mother earth in their spirited efforts to obtain possession of the leather. After an exciting struggle victory resulted in favour of the Wanderers. The fine runs of Hooman and Bonsor were conspicuous, and greatly conduced to the fine drop kicks effected by Kingsford, Mort[e]n and Rose, whilst L. Warner (Upton Park FC) and the brothers Heron proved invaluable on behalf of the Candidates.

Friday, 28 February 1873 - Newspapers report that the players for the upcoming grand international football match will be chosen from Messrs Ottaway, Bonsor, J.Clegg, Greenhalgh, Hubert Heron, Goodwyn, Howell, Morton, Kingsford, W. Clegg, Rose, Vidal, von Donop, Thompson and Chenery.

Thomas Hooman withdrew from the initial England line-up.
