Friday December 11th
On this day the Eton Eleven made its appearance and a remarkably strong eleven it was. The match soon became a very exciting one but the Etonians seemed to have a great advantage in running as there were very few of our men from whom they could not very soon get clear away. After about an hour’s hard play on both sides, during which time Eton got two games, the elevens dispersed. This was our only defeat this season.
