WALES:
WDFA
Captain: Dr Alfred Owen Davies
Dr Robert Herbert Mills-Roberts (Preston North End); Dr Alfred Owen Davies (Swifts), John "Jack" Powell (Newton Heath), Reuben Humphreys (Druids), Joe Davies (Newton Heath), David "Di" Jones (Chirk), William Ernest Pryce-Jones (Cambridge University), Job Wilding (Bootle), John "Jack" Doughty (Newton Heath), Edmund Gwynne Howell (Builth), Roger Doughty (Newton Heath)

Notes:
  • Recorded in some sources as being played at Acton Park, Wrexham.
  • The times of six of the goals were seemingly not recorded by either the Welsh or Irish newspapers. The order of goalscoring was as follows: (first half) J. Doughty (1st min), R. Doughty (3), Howell (15), Wilding (??), J. Dought (??), (second half) Wilding (55), Wilding (??), Howell (??), R. Doughty (??), Wilding (??), J. Doughty (89).
  • The Welsh players Jack and Roger Doughty were brothers.
  • Wales finished the match with eight men as A.O. Davies, W.E. Pryce-Jones and E.G. Howell left the field early to catch their train. The score at that stage was already 10-0.
