Our thanks to Arthur Haygarth for collecting the information and to Roger Heavens for providing this scorecard which was first published in Arthur Haygarth's Cricket Scores and Biographies Volume 16.

W. Hearn did not assist the winners. John Hughes (aged 53) still bowled well. Which of the Westells played the score did not state. The score was published in 1880 Wisden pp 208-9.
The return match was to have come off at Hertford on July 24 but in consequence of part of the ground being under water from the late rains, it was postponed and finally abandoned altogether.
