PLAYER PROFILE

William Allardes was born in the county of Banffshire in
Scotland in 1860, the son of William & Jean. He spent some of
his childhood residing at the School House in the village of
Bethmorey. On leaving school he became an apprentice engineer and
moved to Newcastle Upon Tyne while doing his training; taking up
lodgings with the Corbet(t) family. They lived off Westgate Road on
Summerhill Street in Newcastle. He became interested in the newly
arrived association rules football which was just beginning to expand
in the city & soon joined Newcastle Rangers. Allardes became one
of the players who played in the clubs very first ever football
match; and as such can be considered as a founding member of the
club. The club were initially called The Rangers & were based in
Gateshead & that very first game took place on November 10th
1879, against the already established & the biggest club in the
area; Tyne Association. They lost 4;0, with William playing as a
forward. Earlier that year in the summer on August 12th he
was also seen playing cricket for local side Trinity Association
Cricket Club. This was on August 12th 1979, in a closely
fought match with the YMCA, which they lost by 1 run. Allardes would
feature prominently in 'The Rangers' first season, which began over
in Gateshead, with home games being played on the Army Drill Field,
Alexandra Road; before they relocated to Newcastle the following season.

Rangers' first season in existence continued playing a
variety of friendly challenge matches locally; in a season before
competitive cup fixtures, which did not commence until the following
season. As a side just getting to grips with association rules
football, results often did not go their way that season, but the
grounding it gave them would pave the way for much greater things in
the seasons to come. His next games for the club were in 1880,
beginning with s defeat to the North Durham Rugby Club. A week later
on January 10th it was a much closer affair to a
Westmacott's XI, which included a number of Tyne players. A scratch
Tyne side were The Rangers next opponents and they lost 4;2. In all
of these earliest matches for the club,m Allardes played as a
forward, post out left. After a defeat to Corbridge, they met tougher
opposition with the visit to the North East of Glasgow side Athole;
which is one of the earliest records of a side visiting the region to
play. They were well beaten 8;0 in this one; on March 13th
1880. The sides last two games were more local & they gained
their first victory a week later; beating North Eastern 5;0. Allardes
was among the goalscorers. The season ended on April 3rd
1880 with a goalless draw with Corbridge. William Allardes had been a
regular player in the side that season making a total of 7 friendly
appearances. This appears to be the end of his involvement with the
Rangers club; although it maybe that he was one of those that took
part in the inaugural match at St. James Park at the start of e
18880-81 season; were the line up s are not known.

William Allardes like several other players, chose Rugby rules football, the
following season & he joined the Northern Rugby Club. This well
established local side had a second team & it was on October 16th
1880 that he made his debut in a win over South Shields Rovers;
playing as a forward. Not all the sides line ups are known from that
season, but he is known to have featured in a further three matches
that season; all in 1880; often playing alongside one of the
Challoner's. These were on October 23rd, November 13th
& finally on December 11th in a victory over Tynemouth 2nd
Team. It is quite probable to played in more that these known games.
As with association rules in the region cup competitions had not
arrived yet and all matches were friendly challenge matches. During
the summer of 1881, William was seen turning out for the Trinity
Association Cricket club once more. There are two early summer known
appearances for their second team; by him; on April 30th
were they lost to Tankerville & on May 14th
when they won 65 To 46 in a return friendly fixture. In the later he
hit 1 run. The 1881-82 season saw Allardes remain with the Northern
Rugby Club & two further appearances for the second team have so
far been uncovered. They were on December 17th
1881 in a win over Darlington 2nd Team & then on February 11th
1882 in a victory over North Durham's 2nd
Team. There are no records of him playing cricket that summer,
however, census records confirm that he married the daughter the
couple of the couple he lodged with Euphmenia. They were married in
July of 1882 in Newcastle. The 1882-83 season appears to be his last
playing rugby for Northern's second team & a further 3
appearances for them have so far been identified. In the first
against Sunderland's 2nd
Team they won, with him scoring his sides only try. They played them
again a week later, with Allardes in the side and they won again.
Finally, on January 6th 1883, his last known appearance in side, still as a forward; was
against Tynemouth 2nd Team./ This time they by a goal & a try.

William Allardes life after this is a little sketchy. No further sporting
involvement has so far come to light in the North East of England;
with electoral records showing he and his wife lived on Bolingstroke
Street, Heaton in the East of Newcastle until, at least 1886. By 1888
it appears the couple had relocated to Ireland. Initially to Belfast
and then as a 41 year old William & Euphemia were residing at
Ravenshill Road, Ormeau, County Down and had 4 children.
Unfortunately the 1911 census for Ireland is not available & just
a year later on October 5th in Glasgow; Euphemia's death is recorded and as a widow. Thus from
this we can only assume at some point between 1901 & 1912,
William Allardes died, possibly in Ireland. There is is also no
information as to whether he participated in any further sporting
activities while living over there.
