Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Charles John was a footballer who played for England in the first international match against Scotland. He also played cricket for Surrey and Northants. Chenery was born in Lambourn, Berkshire, the son of George Chenery and Sophia Atkins. He was educated at Marlborough Royal Free Grammar School, although the family also spent three or four years in Australia in the early 1860s. After leaving school he joined the original Crystal Palace club and was selected for the "England" side that played an unofficial international match against a Scottish side in February 1872. He was retained for the first official international match which took place on 30 November 1872 at West of Scotland Cricket Club's ground at Hamilton Crescent in Partick, Scotland. The match finished in a 0-0 draw, with Chenery playing as one of seven or eight forwards.show more
