Richard “Dickie” Baugh (14 February 1864 – 14 August 1929) was an English footballer who spent the majority of his career with Wolverhampton Wanderers, for whom he played in three FA Cup finals (one as captain).
Baugh began his career with the Wolverhampton-based Stafford Road. During his time here, he earned a call-up to the England team – the club’s only player to achieve this honour – making his international debut on 13 March 1886 in a 6-1 win over Ireland.
The defender joined Wolves just weeks later, and made his club debut on 30 March 1886 in a 6-0 FA Cup thumping of Matlock. He played in Wolves’ first-ever league game in the inaugural season of the Football League in 1888/89 and played in that season’s FA Cup Final defeat to Preston North End.
He appeared in two further FA Cup finals with the club – in 1893 he was on the winning side in a 1-0 triumph overEverton, while in 1896 he was captain as they went down 2-1 to Wednesday.
After playing over 220 senior games for Wolves, he moved to Walsall in 1896, this was to be his last season in football and he played only 6 games before retiring due to a knee injury.
His son Dickie Baugh, Jr later also played for Wolves.
