East Kent had Boorman and four of Hampshire as given men; West Kent had four of Surrey. There must be an unrecorded score of 0* in East Kent (2). East Kent batted on after victory: Purchase b Clifford 11, Small, sen c Bullen 3, Small, jun stumped 17, Boorman c Wells 8, Ring b Clifford 27, Harris b Beldham 0, Church not out 0, Kennett stumped 0, total 87. Remarkably, the game continued with West Kent (3): Crawte c Purchase 23, T Walker c Aylward 0, H Walker c Crosoer 2, Wells c Harris 24, Brazier c Purchase 7, Beldham c Harris 0, Hosmer b Purchase 1, Clifford c Crosoer 3, Amherst not out 0, Bullen b Harris 23, Palmer b Purchase 0, byes 1, total 84. This would have left East Kent with 28 to win but time must have run out at this point.
The fact that East Kent batted on has caused several sources to reverse the teams, with East Kent batting first, making 87 in (2), and winning by 57 runs. Britcher gives the dates as Tuesday and Wednesday, 3, 4 Aug but these dates were Monday and Tuesday so it is assumed he meant 4, 5 August.
