First match not known
At the time of the England match in 1893, Perry Barr was still a part of Handsworth, a seperate entity to Birmingham. Committee's were installed and meetings were attended and later in the year, Perry Barr would become part of the Birmingham City Council and therefore become a part of Warwickshire too, but this had not happened yet in February 1893.
The site is now occupied by Willmore Road and Leslie Road. The site of the Pavilion appears to be in backyard of 77 Willmore Road.
