WANDERERS AROUND THE WORLD

Wanderers has always been an international sort of club, even when that meant something very different.

​​

The Victorian Wanderers' form of 'internationalism' meant that players from the British Isles were born or died overseas. Morton Betts died in Menton, France. EE Bowen was born in Ireland but died in France. The club's first goalscorer, AM Tebbut, died in Argentina. At least 8 players were born in India or Sri Lanka and roughly the same number passed away in Australia or the USA. Wanderers could boast full and pseudo-internationals for England, Wales and Scotland.

​​

In the modern era, when international travel is more commonplace, we encourage players to take pictures of themselves wearing their Wanderers kit whenever they travel, as you can see in the gallery. We have also welcomed players from across the globe. Currently, the following 50+ nations* have been represented with the first player from that country in the modern era listed below, based on when they made their debut for one of the club's 11-a-side teams;
