      _________________

      In the fall of 1888, a team made up of players from the Western Football Association of Ontario toured the British Isles with notable success. Many of the players who made this trip became very distinguished persons in later life. The year 1888 marked the beginning of England's famous Football League, and the Canadian team played Notts County, Newton Heath (now Manchester United), Blackburn Rovers, Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion, who were members of that league. They also played such famous clubs as Glasgow Rangers, Queens Park, Ayr (not Ayr United in those days) and Hearts, plus a team made up of some of the best Scottish players, but not the actual Scottish national team. The Canadians made quite an impression on the British soccer scene at that time, and the English papers, in particular, are full of praise for the players. Seventeen of the 18 players who made the trip were born in Canada. The only one who was not was David Forsyth, who was brought to Canada from Scotland at the age of two.

      Players who made the trip:

      Harry Bewell, Harry P. Bingham, Walter W. Bowman, Solomon Brubacher, Dr. William Burnet, Alexander Noble Garrett, Alex Gibson, Tom Gibson, Dr. Edward Payson Gordon, Fred Killer, Charles (Carl) Kranz, Tom W. Murray, Dr Wilfred Pirt Mustard, Dr. Henry Hempton "Harry" Pirie, Dr. Walter Proudfoot Thomson, E.W. Webster, David Forsyth.
