Football at Cardiff


July 12, 1910
At a meeting of the board of directors of the Cardiff City Association Football Club Company, in the Bristol and South Wales Hotel on Monday evening, Mr. Sid Nicholls presiding, the Secretary (Mr. Bardsley Wilson) made the announcement that the signing of players was almost complete, and Mr. C. Kyd had secured some brilliant men.

It was announced that the new ground of the club in Sloper Road would be named after Lord Ninian Stuart, who had consented to open it for the first match, which takes place early in September. Leigh Roose, the famous Welsh international, has offered to play. At present the most important captures are as follows: –

Goalkeeper: Edward Husbands (Liverpool and Wrexham); backs: Mackenzie (Montrose) and Duffy (Dundee); half-backs: Lowrie (Edinburgh Hibernians and Glentoran), Ramsey (Dundee), and David McDougall (Glasgow Rangers and Glentoran); forwards: Macdonald (Aberdeen), Stewart (Carlisle and Belfast Distillery), Malloch (Dundee), Ahley (Aston Villa), and Evans (Bala).
