On Wednesday April 24 a cricket match was played between the present Westminsters and an Eleven of Old Westminsters, brought down by Hatching. The day was cloudy early but eventually turned out fine – the present Westminsters headed their opponents by 35 runs in their four innings and had taken 8 wickets for 24 runs when the stumps were drawn at a 30.

If there had been time to pitch the match the Present Westminsters would doubly have won in the innings. For further particularities see T.B cricket ledger.
