Notes:
A 10-a-side team match played by telegraph. According to Hilbert and Lahde, this match was declared drawn as a whole before most of the games were finished, and before they were advanced enough to be adjudicated. The only game to be agreed drawn by the players before the match was terminated was that between Mills and D.G. Baird. Sergeant says that two games were finished, but does not say which games. Di Felice gives the results of all 10 games as draws.
