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.

Tuesday the eighth of December was the day appointed for the Harrow match, but as Harrow had broken up they were unable to bring the whole of their own eleven and filled up with some old Harovians from Oxford and Cambridge, and it was said that an Etonian was present also. However that was the result was a very strong eleven which however only succeeded in making a drawn match of it each side getting one game.

It was a miserable day – pouring with rain and so windy that the ball was “out” every minute in spite however of these difficulties the match was a very spirited on.
