Weather bad, especially the first day (Whit Monday) and ground heavy.
The Colts, composed of amateurs and professionals, went in first by agreement. W. Mycroft, G. Hay and T. Foster did not assist the county, which therefore was somewhat weak.
Source records that the Derbyshire Colts came from the following clubs: Belper (Limb), Chesterfield (Clayton, Osborne), Codnor (Bentley), Derby (Antcliff, Brooks, Dines, Docker, Higgins), Findern (Harrison), Heanor (King), Ilkeston (Swanwick, Tillson), Melbourne (Neale), Riddings (Wright), Ripley (Millington, Shelton), Somercotes (Gascoyne), Staveley (Bastow, Kenyon), Tideswell (Swan).
Source has Derbyshire Colts batting in alphabetical order which seems unlikely.
R. Docker is perhaps M.R. Docker.
