Newtown played a great part in the early history of
Welsh Association Football.

Many players born in Newtown, or played for clubs in the town,
became Welsh International footballers.
We feature those players
 here.

Montgomeryshire County Times
10th March 1894

Next Monday sees the International between England and Wales.
The English team consists purely of Amateurs but they are a very strong lot and to beat them, Wales will have to play well.
Jack Evans, Rea and Chapman performed so well at Swansea, that their claims could not be overlooked and they are again complimented with International honours.



Montgomeryshire County Times
17th March 1894

5,000 spectators turned up to see this match.
The report included;
"A run by Veitch resulted in Trainer having a shot to stop and then after Gay had saved, Chapman returned and an exciting scrimmage took place near the English citadel, after which, danger was averted."
"Sandilands went away but was checked in time by Chapman."
"A corner off Lodge's foot nearly ended in a goal for the Welshmen, Chapman's shot skimming the crossbar."
"Chapman was first class and the only half back on the Welsh side up to the match. His play was the one redeeming feature in this line. The Newtown men must make the most of him this season, for they will surely lose him shortly. He is good enough for any team in England or Wales." 


Montgomeryshire Express and Radnor Times
12th March 1895

On Monday, two teams met on Wrexham's Racecourse Ground for the purpose of enabling the selection committe of the Welsh Association to see if there were any players in the Wales and Border counties teams, clever enough to do battle on behalf of "Gallant Little Wales" in the coming international contests against England, Scotland and Ireland.
The opponents assumed the names of Whites and Stripes and after an interesting and somewhat exciting match, the latter were declared the winners by six goals to four.

Montgomeryshire Express and Radnor Times
26th March 1895

The report included;
The following Monday, (after the Ireland match) the team journeyed to London and were opposed by a team of amateurs representing England.
Here again they showed the crowd that Wales possessed leather chasers.
In the first half, neither team could gain advantage although each goal was bombarded vigorously. Lewis availed himself of his speed and made a dashing run.
He was hotly pursued but outstripped them all, finishing up a grand sprint by landing the leather into the net, amidst great cheering.
Wales kept up the pressure and seemed like scoring again, but Sandilands proved the superior of the Englishmen and equalised, after chevving up the centre.
The game ended in a draw, one goal each.

Montgomeryshire Express and Radnor Times
26th March 1895

The report included;
For the twentieth time the teams representing the land of the leek and the land of the thistle faced each other to try conclusions in their international match at Wrexham.
Up to Saturday, out of these twenty matches, the Welshmen have only once succeeded in making a draw with the sturdy northerners and never as yet affected a win.
Feelings ran high in the favour of the Scotchmen but gallant little Wales were not to be 'played in' as the saying goes, and after a few minutes after the start were credited with a goal.
The Scots were not long in retaliating and at half time were leading by two goals to one.
In the second '45', the Welshmen were able to hold their own although the men "frae the north" pressed.
Shot after shot was repulsed by Jones and finally Wales attacked. They kept the Scotch backs going for some trime, Chapman ("You all know Chapman. Get out! You will very soon") slipping the ball into the net and making the game a draw at two goals each.
Mytton of Newtown was picked to play centre for Wales but the injury he received at the hands or feet of Ellis when playing Shrewsbury was of such nature, that he was obliged to remain at home.

With Newtown F.C.; 

Montgomeryshire Express and Radnor Times
25th February 1896

Trial match. Only one Newtown player was engaged, named Nock and by all accounts he played a fairly good game.
The whites were outstripped in play, although they struggled gallantly. They lost by seven goals to one, Nock of Newtown doing the needful.
Among players picked to represent Wales against Ireland, I notice the name of C. Parry of Newtown.

Montgomeryshire Express and Radnor Times
10th March 1896

The Welsh Association selected a very powerful team to meet England, with eight belonging to League clubs

Montgomeryshire Express and Radnor Times
17th March 1896

It will take a powerful English XI to beat the Welsh side which includes C. Parry of Newtown and T. Chapman of Newtown and Manchester City.
I was sadly disappointed to find that Tucker at least has not been selected. Instead, the committee selected Rogers of Wrexham. I have nothing to sat against Rogers. I feel confident that play as he will, he cannot excel Tucker, who has played a marvellous game this season.


Montgomeryshire Express and Radnor Times
24th March 1896

On Monday, the elete of England were billed against the representatives of 'Gallant Little Wales' as some people are so fond of calling the Pricipality.
Welshmen have always made a good show, but on this occasion, they hardly made any show at all.
Of course it must be remembered that the English played the first half with the wind in their backs and it is not to be wondered that they gave the Welshmen such a thrashing by nine goals to one.

The Welsh team was a fairly representative one with C. Parry included in the eleven and according to reports was superior to Arridge, who it is alleged made innumerable mistakes.
Tom Chapman was placed at centre forward and did a yeoman service for his side, scoring the only goal the Welshmen obtained with a shot that the custodian had no chance to stop.

The report included;
"This International match showed Wales up with credibility in every respect. A good attendance resulted in record receipts of £147."
"Chapman at centre half was acknowledged by all as the best half back on the ground and he cannot be omitted from the list in the English match."
"Wales were the better team all round and should have scored two goals in the first half when facing a strong wind."
"Chapman did the best of the halves."

The report included;
"In the International Wales v Scotland our local pets did famously. O.D.S. Taylor who was captain of the team worked hard all through and defended with great agility."
"Chapman as on the other two occasions was the champion half back, and quite delighted the  the canny Scots with his fine play."
"Since returning from Scotland I am sorry to hear that this good man has been ill, but trust that the illness is only temporary."
"Chapman has trained well for his matches and has probably overdone it a little. After the long journey and fatigue of playing, he ought not to have expected to show up against Stafford Rangers on Monday."
"Worthen (nb Worthington) at left half back played as  good football as any of the half backs."
"It is a very great honour to Newtown to have three men chosen for the international cap in one season. Newtown can now boast of possessing no less than five Internationals in their team."
"The result of 5v2 was not a fair criterion of the play as Wales had quite their share of the game all through."  



Montgomeryshire County Times
24th February 1894

On Monday evening after the committee meeting of Newtown F.C., W.E. Pryce-Jones, Captain, presented O.D.S. Taylor with a handsome travelling bag.
The Captain in a neat little speech, alluded to the good services Mr Taylor had rendered to his club for many years and to his gentlemanly conduct and play at all times.
Mr Taylor suitably acknowledged the receipt of the good and useful present and also the kind words of the worthy captain who made it.

"Chapman at centre half was acknowledged by all as the best half back on the ground and he cannot be omitted from the list in the English match."

Next Monday sees the International between England and Wales.
The English team consists purely of Amateurs but they are a very strong lot and to beat them, Wales will have to play well.
Jack Evans, Rea and Chapman performed so well at Swansea, that their claims could not be overlooked and they are again complimented with International honours.



Montgomeryshire County Times
17th March 1894

5,000 spectators turned up to see this match.
The report included;
"A run by Veitch resulted in Trainer having a shot to stop and then after Gay had saved, Chapman returned and an exciting scrimmage took place near the English citadel, after which, danger was averted."
"Sandilands went away but was checked in time by Chapman."
"A corner off Lodge's foot nearly ended in a goal for the Welshmen, Chapman's shot skimming the crossbar."
"Chapman was first class and the only half back on the Welsh side up to the match. His play was the one redeeming feature in this line. The Newtown men must make the most of him this season, for they will surely lose him shortly. He is good enough for any team in England or Wales."

On Monday, two teams met on Wrexham's Racecourse Ground for the purpose of enabling the selection committe of the Welsh Association to see if there were any players in the Wales and Border counties teams, clever enough to do battle on behalf of "Gallant Little Wales" in the coming international contests against England, Scotland and Ireland.
The opponents assumed the names of Whites and Stripes and after an interesting and somewhat exciting match, the latter were declared the winners by six goals to four.

The report included;
The Ireland match at Belfast excited a great deal of interest.
Among the Welsh players I was pleased to observe that Newtown was represented by Parry and Chapman and Edwards of Oswestry.
These players acquitted themselves well and did some useful work.
Edwards and Chapman undoubtedly made their mark, and the Association selected them to play the International match against Scotland.
The match was evenly contested although Ireland made several bold attacks, but the defence of the Welsh goal was grand.
Ireland were first to score and at half time were leading by two goals to one. Just before time Harry Trainer sent the leather through  with a lightening shot, thereby making the game a draw

The report included;
For the twentieth time the teams representing the land of the leek and the land of the thistle faced each other to try conclusions in their international match at Wrexham.
Up to Saturday, out of these twenty matches, the Welshmen have only once succeeded in making a draw with the sturdy northerners and never as yet affected a win.
Feelings ran high in the favour of the Scotchmen but gallant little Wales were not to be 'played in' as the saying goes, and after a few minutes after the start were credited with a goal.
The Scots were not long in retaliating and at half time were leading by two goals to one.
In the second '45', the Welshmen were able to hold their own although the men "frae the north" pressed.
Shot after shot was repulsed by Jones and finally Wales attacked. They kept the Scotch backs going for some trime, Chapman ("You all know Chapman. Get out! You will very soon") slipping the ball into the net and making the game a draw at two goals each.
Mytton of Newtown was picked to play centre for Wales but the injury he received at the hands or feet of Ellis when playing Shrewsbury was of such nature, that he was obliged to remain at home.

Interested by the above that Nock of Newtown is selected and if he plays as good a game as I have seen him, the committee will not hesitate to select him as one to represent Wales against England, Scotland and Ireland. Disappointed thatTucker was not picked. A better half back never trod the turf in Newtown as regard speed, severeness of kick and tackling. He came out in his true colours at Wrexham and if his hand had not been present, Taylor would have had something of a stiffish nature to do.

The Welsh Association selected a very powerful team to meet England, with eight belonging to League clubs

Montgomeryshire Express and Radnor Times
17th March 1896

It will take a powerful English XI to beat the Welsh side which includes C. Parry of Newtown and T. Chapman of Newtown and Manchester City.
I was sadly disappointed to find that Tucker at least has not been selected. Instead, the committee selected Rogers of Wrexham. I have nothing to sat against Rogers. I feel confident that play as he will, he cannot excel Tucker, who has played a marvellous game this season.


Montgomeryshire Express and Radnor Times
24th March 1896

On Monday, the elete of England were billed against the representatives of 'Gallant Little Wales' as some people are so fond of calling the Pricipality.
Welshmen have always made a good show, but on this occasion, they hardly made any show at all.
Of course it must be remembered that the English played the first half with the wind in their backs and it is not to be wondered that they gave the Welshmen such a thrashing by nine goals to one.

The Welsh team was a fairly representative one with C. Parry included in the eleven and according to reports was superior to Arridge, who it is alleged made innumerable mistakes.
Tom Chapman was placed at centre forward and did a yeoman service for his side, scoring the only goal the Welshmen obtained with a shot that the custodian had no chance to stop.

The report included;
The following Monday, (after the Ireland match) the team journeyed to London and were opposed by a team of amateurs representing England.
Here again they showed the crowd that Wales possessed leather chasers.
In the first half, neither team could gain advantage although each goal was bombarded vigorously. Lewis availed himself of his speed and made a dashing run.
He was hotly pursued but outstripped them all, finishing up a grand sprint by landing the leather into the net, amidst great cheering.
Wales kept up the pressure and seemed like scoring again, but Sandilands proved the superior of the Englishmen and equalised, after chevving up the centre.
The game ended in a draw, one goal each.

The whites were outstripped in play, although they struggled gallantly. They lost by seven goals to one, Nock of Newtown doing the needful.
Among players picked to represent Wales against Ireland, I notice the name of C. Parry of Newtown.

William Nock was not chosen during the 1896 International campaign, but was successful the following year.

Martin Jarred: "Morris' lone Wales appearance while a Leeds City player produced one of the principality's finest results to date. The previous season, inspired by the great wing wizard Billy Meredith, they had beaten Scotland for the first time after 30 years of trying. But few gave the Welsh any hope of repeating the feat when they tackled the Scots at Tynecastle 12 months later, because Manchester City star Meredith was serving a suspension for allegedly bribing an Aston Villa player to lose a match.

"The Welsh selectors were also without several other regulars but the stand ins, some drawn from League clubs' reserve sides, did their country proud. Meredith's replacement, Lot Jones, opened the scoring when goalkeeper Jimmy Raeside allowed a shot to slip through his hands. Another Jones, Stoke reserve John, who had come in for Notts County's Arthur Green, added another to give Wales a 2-0 win and surprise back to back victories against the Scots."

Liverpool F.C.


Dickie was recruited by reigning First Division champions Liverpool, making his senior debut at home to Bury on April 19, 1902.

Over the next three years, the Welshman appeared in 38 League games for the Anfield side, scoring five times. Two of those goals came in a Merseyside derby clash with Everton in October 1903. Liverpool were relegated at the end of that season but regained their First Division spot at the first attempt in 1905.

During his time at Liverpool, Morris was a regular with Wales, playing in all their five fixtures between March 9 1903 and March 21 1904. The pick of those games was the 2-2 draw with England at Wrexham on February 29 1904.

The result meant that the Welsh had beaten the English twice and drawn five times in 26 matches since their first pairing in 1879 and Morris had featured in two of the draws. Such results represented a vast improvement on recent heavy defeats, 6-0 in 1893, 5-1 1894, 9-1 1896, 4-0 1897, 3-0 1898, 4-1 1899 and 6-0 1901.

Morris had every right to be proud of the part he played in his country's upturn in fortunes.

Leeds City


In 1905 Morris, an inside-left, joined Leeds City on the 5th July, in search of regular first-team football.
Welsh inside-forward Dickie Morris was the first Leeds City player to win international honours while on the Elland Road club's books. Selection for Wales for the match against Ireland in March 1906 allowed him to add to the eight caps he already had to his name when signing for the Peacocks a year earlier.

Morris scored four goals, a feat matched by centre-forward Fred Hargraves, as City hammered Morley 11-0 in an FA Cup preliminary round game.

Renowned for his energetic displays and excellent ball control, Morris was described as a "tireless runner and top speed dribbler"; he brought style and class to the City forward line as they sought to build on their admission to the first class game. As an established international forward, he was something of a jewel in the Elland Road crown.

Grimsby Town


At Grimsby Town, he again lasted just a single season, netting seven times in his 24 league games before moving to Home Park in the summer of 1907. 




Plymouth Argyle




Amongst a string of new recruits was 17-year-old Septimus Atterbury, who signed from Swindon and went on to play 361 times for Argyle, including 31 in the post-1920 Football League era, and then continued on as a trainer to complete a 30-year association with the club. Another new boy, Richard 'Dickie' Morris, joined from Grimsby Town. The inside-left was an established Welsh international and became Argyle's first player to be called up for his country whilst with the club, a 1-0 defeat for Wales against Ireland at Aberdare on 11th April, 1908.

Morris was a regular in the side during his only campaign with Argyle, and had a fair goalscoring record. In April 1908 he became the first player to be capped whilst with Argyle when he played for Wales against Ireland in what proved to be his final international appearance.

After leaving Plymouth at the end of the 1907-08 season, he had a brief spell with Reading before ending his career at Huddersfield Town.
