England Career as Captain

Captain number 17th player to captain England.
Player number 116th player to appear for England.
Position(s) Left-back, right-back.
First match No. 40, 5 April 1890, Scotland 1 England 1, a British Championship match at Hampden Park, Crosshill, Glasgow; aged 25 years 69 days.
Last match No. 40, 5 April 1890, Scotland 1 England 1, a British Championship match at Hampden Park, Crosshill, Glasgow; aged 25 years 69 days.
Notes Almost certain it was Arthur Walters on this occasion, instead of his brother, Percy - but there is doubt.  The London Times, The Sportsman, Sporting Chronicle, Alcock's Annual 1890, Athletic News Annual 1891-92, Preston Herald and Glasgow Herald decline to mention any England captain.  In The Field, Arthur Walters is listed as captain in the line-up, the Athletic News reads as 'PM and AM Walters (Capt)'.  But Arthur Walters is usually no.2 in the line-up, and this publication could have got the brothers mixed-up. Besides, The Field notes that it was Percy who gave the post-match dinner speech, not Arthur.
Major tournaments None.
Team honours None.
Individual honours 9 full caps for England
