Notes

  • Attendance Record:  New world record attendance.
  • Umpires:  C. Campbell for Scotland and RP Gregson for England.
  • Disputed Captain:  The English captain is credited in one source as just Walters. As there were two on the pitch it is not certain which one it was, but as the senior brother both in age and caps we think it would have been Percy Walters. He had captained three times before whilst his brother had not.
  • Goal Milestone:  Harry Wood's 1st Goal
