The match was advertised in the Kentish Gazette as East Malling (with Amherst, Boxall, Robinson, Tufton, H Walker and J Walker) v Kent (with Beldham, Harris, Louch, Small and Tufton) but not all these players appeared. Britcher calls it Kent (with Beldham, Robinson and Small) v England, as does SB. This has been accepted, although two Kent men, Ring and Russell (of Rochester) appear on the England side.
