Statistics of Primera División de México in season 1905-06.

Overview[edit]

In Mexico, the 1905-06 season saw the first club from the capital - Reforma Athletic Club- win the Mexican championship.[1] This club, though dominated by Brits, did also allow native players. It was remarkable that in 20 league matches there were 16 where at last one or both sides failed to score. Champions Reforma had two excellent full-backs in the brothers Robert and Charles Blackmore, while most of their goals were not scored by a forward but by right half-back Charles Butlin. Mexico Cricket Club, which had changed name to San Pedro Golf Club, were runners-up.
