The oldest team to face England thus far.

    Match Report

At Wrexham, there was a numerous company to witness the match between these elevens...

At length Cotterill, who had previously run the ball close up to the posts, once more got in possession of it and registered the first goal for the visitors...

...Henfrey then passed the ball to Gosling, who kicked it against one of the posts ; but Sandilands immediately afterwards sent it under the crossbar... - The Times - Monday 7th March, 1892
