W. Hearn did not assist the winners. John Hughes (aged 53) still bowled well. Which of the Westells played the score did not state. The score was published in 1880 Wisden pp 208-9.
The return match was to have come off at Hertford on July 24 but in consequence of part of the ground being under water from the late rains, it was postponed and finally abandoned altogether.
