Event table notes

Event data
Name: Manchester - Liverpool Club Match
Place: Liverpool
Start date: 25 Mar. 1871
End date: 25 Mar. 1871
 
Notes:
Forster has 'F.J. Hamel' at this event, but a personal communication from Tim Harding gives Frederick Julius Hamel's birth year as 1862, so it seems unlikely that he would be playing for the Manchester team at such a young age. Ludwig Hamel died in 1870. Harding (p.55) suggests that it might have been Sigismund Hamel in this event. I will follow this suggestion.
