Footnotes

  • Meredith made 48 appearances for the Wales team during his career, scoring 11 goals in the process. He was chosen for 71 consecutive matches, but only made 48 appearances because on many occasions his club Manchester United refused to release him at his time at the club between 1906 and 1921. Meredith is the oldest player to represent Wales at 45 years and 229 days.
