The FA was formed there on 26 October 1863, a Monday evening.The captains, secretaries and other representatives of a dozen London and suburban clubs playing their own versions of football met “for the purpose of forming an Association with the object of establishing a definite code of rules for the regulation of the game”.Ebenezer Morley, a London solicitor who formed Barnes FC in 1862, could be called the ‘father’ of The Association.
It was a disappointing entry, because The FA had 50 member clubs by that time.
Apparently, many of them felt that competition would lead to unhealthy rivalry and even bitterness.
The first Cup season turned out to be quite truncated with withdrawals and byes.
Only 12 clubs actually played and there were just 13 matches in total but Wanderers beat Royal Engineers 1-0 before 2,000 spectators at Kennington Oval in a Final described by The Sporting Life as “a most pleasant contest”.
A match between ‘England’ and ‘Scotland’ was another good idea from Alcock.
Morley wrote to Bell’s Life, a popular newspaper, suggesting that football should have a set of rules in the same way that the MCC had them for cricket.
