Newton Heath 1891 - 1892 Team

Newton Heath are pictured here wearing red and white jerseys, contrary to popular belief. The club had stopped wearing green and gold in 1888.

  1. Do you have any names for the team? My great grandfather was meant to have played, he was Frank Mather, my cousin just told me that he thought he played in goal. He is also meant to have played rugby for England. I have a family photo of 2 men and a baby with a large rugby cup and my cousin has a photo of the Newton Heath team which was in the family. He was born 1867 so would have been playing around 1890.
