BRITISH "FA XI" TOURS

This document contains information on the various international tours made by representative 
teams ("FA XIs") of the four British football associations, namely the (English) Football
Association (FA), the Scottish Football Association (SFA), the Football Association of Wales 
(FAW), and the (Northern) Irish Football Association (IFA). Official tours made by the full 
national teams are not included here.

The teams were usually referred to as "FA XI" teams, or "FA touring" teams, unless otherwise
indicated below. None of these matches are recognized to be full internationals by any of
the four British associations. A few matches are considered to be full internationals by
the host countries.

The touring teams varied in strength over the years - on some occasions the teams were 
virtually identical to the full national teams in terms of personnel, but it must be
emphasized that even in those cases, the matches were not recognized as full internationals, 
and no caps were awarded. Information is given below on the number of established 
internationalists in each touring party, and the reader may draw his or her own 
conclusions as to the calibre of the team.

The first tour listed here is the 1899 (English) FA tour to Germany and Austria. However, 
the Scottish FA had previously attempted to organize a tour of Canada in 1880. The team, 
referred to in the press as "Scotch Canadians", played several games in Britain in early 1880 
with the probable intention of raising funds for the proposed tour. The results were:
3-2 vs Rangers, 7-3 vs Darwen, 8-1 vs Manchester Wanderers, 2-0 vs Nottingham Forest,
2-2 vs Scottish Counties XI, 3-1 vs Ayrshire XI, 5-1 vs Heart of Midlothian.
The tour was ultimately cancelled, following the premature death of the chief organizer 
William Dick (who was also the secretary of the SFA) in April 1880.

Notes: Bennett, Brownlie, Gordon, McMenemy and Wilson had played full internationals prior to the tour. McBain did so later. In the Scottish and American press the team was mostly referred to simply as "Third Lanark". In the Canadian press it was called "Scotland", or the Scottish FA team. The team had nothing directly to do with the SFA. The only reference in the SFA minutes is from the council meeting of 9/2/21 : "Third Lanark granted permission to play matches in Canada and America during close season". Players were awarded commemorative medals bearing the name "Third Lanark". Apparently, the team played some games in the red shirt of Third Lanark, and some in a white shirt bearing a thistle, similar to that used by on some occasions by Scotland international teams. The tour was paid for by the (Canadian) Dominion FA.
