There is a small possibility that Tinsley Lindley, debuting in this match, was the captain, making him the youngest ever.  At least three sources name Percy Walters, another names George Shutt.
Selector: F.A. International Committee - at least 3 captaincies

-B
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.
