MATCH NOTES
General
  • Kent XI Captain not named
  • Kent XI Wicket-keeper not named
  • White Conduit Club Captain not named
  • White Conduit Club Wicket-keeper not named
  • Kent XI 1st innings: bowlers' runs conceded do not balance
  • White Conduit Club 1st innings: bowlers' runs conceded do not balance
  • Kent XI 2nd innings: bowlers' runs conceded do not balance
  • White Conduit Club 2nd innings: bowlers' runs conceded do not balance
  • This is the first 'great' match involving WCC, forerunner of MCC.
  • WCC had six given men; in other words, it consisted of five amateurs from WCC and six professionals.
  • The Kent side likewise has five amateurs, presumably by arrangement, with five Kent professionals and Francis as a given man.
  • The teams are listed with the amateurs first, not in batting order.
  • CJ gives Day 2 close: Kent (2) 37-5 (Hussey 0*) with the men out Amherst 8, Bullen 16, Francis 6, Aylward 4, Ring 3 but this is irreconcilable with the LC version as above, and as CJ is not local to Islington its version is not accepted.
