Cardiff City not 1899, it was 1890?

Postby barnet blue » Thu Aug 04, 2022 7:22 am

Cardiff Football Club
There was a Cardiff FC in 1890, probably the same team that played in the Western League in 1895/96. If I remember correctly they player in red and blue shirts. I'll have to dig into my files for more information.

I think the adress was incomplete as I tried to download it and add to your post... :thumbup:
"Recreational offence". In short, if you're the kind of person who spends valuable time looking to be offended, it's offensive.

100% the rugby, as no football team (Riverside FC or Cardiff City FC) had been formed at that time...

Cardiff RFC (c.1876)
Initially the club strip was black with a skull and crossbones on the front, but when parents complained about the inappropriate emblem, a new strip was chosen. A Cambridge Universty student from the area, Thomas Williams Rees, had worn his college colours in Cardiff and so the colours of Gonville & Gaius College, Cambridge (Blue & Black) were adopted and continue to be worn to this this day.

Riverside FC c.1899 and later Cardiff City FC c.1908
Brown and yellow shirts until the change to blue and white from their inception in 1899 to their change of name in 1908

"Probably", "If I remember correctly", "Played in red and blue shirts"? :? :laughing6:

I'd say that was a rugby club, as at that time they'd never heard of Association Football in this part of the world.

We should have to Riverside kit as an away shirt one year. Also be a nice change to have black socks with blue shirts and white shorts too for a season.
