Charterhouse Match

This match was played at Godalming, July 24th, and resulted in their favour by 78 runs:- They won the toss and went in. Powell and Dames were not separated until 115 was up, the former making 66 the latter 44. After lunch they could make no stand against Wetton and Sandwith, the former bowling slow underhand, the latter ripping fast round; and the innings closed for 147.- On our going to the wickets Higgins batter very steadily, and when he was partnered with Benbow it looked as though we had some chance, but in attempting a short run the latter was given out – a decision which failed to give general satisfaction – and Higgins was shortly after stumped, and the innings closed for 69. We therefore had to follow on and sent Wetton and Sandwith to the wickets, the latter played very steadily for 16, while Dale, Ryde, Benbow and Bain raised the total to 88 for the loss of nine wickets. Score.

The Charterhouse Match

This annual match took place this year at Charterhouse on July 21st, and was a most miserable failure. We won the toss, & Hemsley unfortunately put them in, & they succeeded in making 330 before they were all out. We then went in, when the light has changed, and could only make 50, and in the second innings 25 for five wickets.

We were unquestionably the better Eleven, but Wilks, out best bowler, ‘seemed off the spot’; & everything against us. Had we gone in first, we should have very likely made the 330 & they the 50. For further details see the Cricket Ledger.

No. 300


The Charterhouse match was lost this year by 2 goals to 0. Our fellows were at rather a disadvantage owing their having to play with a much smaller ball than they are accustomed to, which puzzled our backs very much. The match was played at Charterhouse this year.

In the T.B.B. Q.S.S. we lost by 2 goals to nothing. This was not surprising as the Q.S.S. had nine “shirts”.

Westminster V. Harrow Chequers

This match resulted in a draw. The ground was very hard and slippery, but the play was nevertheless very fast.

Past V. Present

No goals were scored on either side, the team of Old Westminsters was rather strong.

On the 23rd of July we played Charterhouse at Vincent Square. They went in first & only obtained 60 runs, Rawson’s bowling proving very effective. We then “handled the willow” & scored 135, of which Alington Q.S obtained 43 in first rate style. Charterhouse in their second innings reached 58, so we won the match by an inning & 17 runs., which was very credible as we had only two of last year’s eleven, vis Rawson & Dury. “Some little dissatisfaction was quietly felt at the Carthusians” (Standard) at Rawson playing as he had left at Whitsuntide, but it is always a rule that seniors who have left at Whitsuntide play for us the next term.

On Wednesday July 19th there was a whole holiday (with the exception of school fr. 8-9) for the ‘Busby dinner’ &c Charter House match, which was played at Lords & which resulted in an easy victory for the Westminsters. On the account of last years match the total absence of old Westminsters is mentioned but this year there were very many of them on the ground. Vidal scored 54 and his bowling was fortunately very good.
