Source notes that F Morley was unable to play owing to pleurisy. No play on Tuesday the 15th as intended because of snow. It was resumed on Saturday the 19th. Weather unfit for cricket.
Source notes that the Nottinghamshire Colts came from the following clubs: Burton Joyce (Cartledge, Hogg), Calverton (JC Hind, WC Hind), Hucknall Torkard (Wright), Kimberley (Haywood), Mansfield (Beeton), Mansfield Wood (Simpson), New Radford (Martin), Nottingham (Burton, C Butler, Elliott, E Gregg, Selby, Wood), Old Bashford (Bowley), Old Radford (H Fisher), Radcliffe-on-Trent (F Butler), Ruddington (Tyers), Wilford (T Gregg), Woodborough (Richardson) and Worksop (Pearson).
The number of applications to play was less numerous than usual, albeit nearly 50 aspirants sent in their names.
Source does not make clear which Gregg bowled - assumed to be T Gregg based on other matches
