Lewis Vaughan Lodge (21 December 1872 – 21 October 1916) was an English footballer who represented the England national football team. He also played first-class cricket with Hampshire.

Sporting career

Lodge, a left- or right-back, made his England debut in a win over Wales in 1894. He played Wales again in 1895 as well as an international against Scotland, and in 1896 he was a member of the English side which beat Ireland, before earning his fifth and final cap in a loss to Scotland later that year.[1] The defender may or may not have captained England in their 1896 encounter with Ireland; primary sources give the captaincy to either Gilbert Smith, George Raikes or Lodge.[2]

At club level, Lodge played for both Cambridge University and the Corinthians.[1] In 1896, Small Heath F.C. persuaded him to play for them; to their disappointment, teaching commitments at Harris Hill School in Newbury restricted him to a single appearance,[3] on 29 February 1896 in a 2–1 defeat of Blackburn Rovers in the First Division of the Football League.[4] Described as "a powerfully-built back of the old school brigade", he was reliable both at kicking the ball and at tackling.[3]

He was a decent cricketer too, appearing in three first-class matches for Hampshire, all in 1900.[5] He also played in the Minor Counties Championship for Durham.[6]


Lodge was born in Aycliffe, near Darlington, in County Durham.[5] He died in Burbage, Derbyshire, aged 43,[5] in unexplained circumstances, being found drowned in a pool.[3]
