Notes:
This was an 11-a-side team match, but only three of the games were finished during the evening (Puller-Long, Salter-Blunden, Young-Sidney). The rest were adjudicated afterwards, but only two were judged to be clearly winning (Medley-Hillas and Carroll-Perceval). The match was declared drawn with two wins on each side. The rest of the games I will not rate as they were unfinished and the result was unclear.
