Virgin Moments

There is a first time for everything.

Here are some football firsts.

The first foreign player in the English Football League was Max Seeburg (a German) who played for Tottenham Hotspur in 1908/09

The first football world cup was in 1930 and the first match was between France and Mexico, France winning 4-1

The first gay football cup final was played this year and was won by GFC Bournmouth

Sir Stanley Matthews was the first professional footballer to be knighted

Arthur Wharton was the first black association professional football player in the world

The first match the Walkers Stadium hosted was a friendly against Athletic Bilbao , and the first competitive match was a 2-0 victory against Watford.

Oh and last night I played my guitar and sang at a party for the first time. Which of course has nothing to do with football but its my blog so I'm allowed.
