Internationalists

 

 

 

Twelve St Anthony's players have gone on to represent their countries at full international level. However, two of them, Christy Martin and Bill Gorman, represented more than one country. Between 1921 and 1950 a player born anywhere in Ireland was eligible for selection by the associations on either side of the border - both associations claimed to represent the whole island. Thus Christy Martin played for both the Irish Free State and (Northern) Ireland, while Bill Gorman turned out for both (The Republic of) Ireland and (Northern) Ireland. Please note that Christy Martin's match against Italy 'B' is considered to be a full international, despite appearances.

 

Note also that Roy Faulkner, capped three times for Canada, was known as Robert Faulkner prior to emigrating to North America.

There is some justification for including wartime internationals in a category of their own, despite being unofficial in nature. However, the "Scotland" versus American Soccer League matches were only SFA XI tour games, not internationals. I have only listed them here because other football historians have listed them.

Please note that only players capped while signed for St Anthony's are included here. Other players were capped before joining, or after leaving, the club.

 

These matches are not all internationals in the true sense of the word. England were usually represented by minor association selects from the Birmingham area, while Wales were usually represented by a North Wales FA select.
