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.

This was the third match played during the "Luton Cricket Week". W. Caffyn the once Surrey crack aged 51, appeared once more in a match. His name will be found in these pages as far back as 1848 and in the Surrey Eleven in 1849. In one account a substitute batted for Mr. W. Read in his second innings, but in another he was caught out for 5.
[G.C. Allee is probably C.G. Allee, the Australian who was playing in England at this time.]
