Sir Charles Clegg played for England against Scotland in the first ever international match (1872). He was the president of the FA and founder of Sheffield United. Clegg died in 1937.
There is much more about him and his brother William (who had also been a referee). Instead of me copying it all, I'd like you to take a look at the excellent Wikipedia page on him, or see here.
- Charles Cleg was a teettotaller and very religious. He was a strong opponent of professionalism in football. As president of Sheffield United he drove out players who made their living as publicans.
