From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Vivian John Woodward (June 3, 1879 - January 31, 1954) was an English amateur football player.

He joined Tottenham Hotspur in 1902 and made his England debut the following year, scoring twice in a 4-0 defeat of Ireland. Between 1903 and 1911, he won 23 full caps and scored 29 goals, setting an English record that would last until the 1950s. At the time, England only usually played three matches a season, for the British Home Championship, but two tours to central Europe in 1908 and 1909 netted Woodward 15 goals (over half his total).

He also turned out 30 times for England Amateurs and scored 44 goals, most of them against inferior European teams. In one match against France in 1906, Woodward scored 8 goals in a 15-0 win. He also played for Chelsea, and was Great Britain captain at the 1908 and 1912 Olympic Games.
