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. Copies of the book can be obtained from . Additions or corrections to this scorecard would be gratefully received.
Source notes that this was the first match played by the London United Eleven, another itinerant team started lately. Their contests in 1879 were not regularly and properly inserted in the sporting papers and are therefore only partly and incompletely here recorded; as with these, so with other matches of note in these records. The existence of the eleven however was, it seems, very brief.
