Event table notes

Event data
Name: Manchester Athenaeum - Leeds Club Match
Place: Leeds
Start date: 29 Mar. 1879
End date: 29 Mar. 1879
 
Notes:
I have guessed at the identity of some of the players, who are only listed by surname in the report in the Leeds Mercury, with corroboration from Steve Mann's web page for the event. Steve Mann, for example, identifies 'Breng' as a typographical mangling of 'Brevig'.
