Diary

In the summer of 1891, plans were made for a second Canadian tour of the British Isles by players from the Western Football Association following the success of the 1888 venture.  However, at some point, the plans went awry, and a number of people backed out.  As a result, players were recruited from the American clubs in New England with whom the WFA had close ties.  From the outset, this trip was seen by some people as a way in which to introduce themselves to British clubs with the object of being signed by them.  If that was the object, then it, and the whole trip in general, was a dismal failure.
