“The laws of the Association game are exceedingly simple, numbering only 12, as against some 40 in the Rugby code,” wrote the Scotsman. “One of the principal differences consists in the entire prohibition of the use of the hands, except by the goalkeeper for the protection of his goal, thus making the skilful and always pleasing ‘dribble’ one of the best points of the game. A goal is scored when it is kicked under the tape, the ball not being allowed to be carried, thrown, or knocked in. Hacking, tripping, holding, or charging an adversary from behind are among things forbidden. Such are some of the differences of the two styles of play, and it will readily be admitted that the Association game is one which will commend itself to players who dread the harder work of the Rugby mode.” It says a lot about the status of association football in Scotland in the 1870s that the country’s biggest daily paper was among several publications which felt the … [Read more...] about Before England’s 1,000th, the story of the first full football international

It may have been midnight at home in the UK, but George, three, and Charlotte, 16 months, happily accompanied their parents during the official welcome.
