Our thanks to Arthur Haygarth for collecting the information and to Roger Heavens for providing this scorecard which was first published in Arthur Haygarth's Cricket Scores and Biographies Volume 16. Copies of the book can be obtained from . Additions or corrections to this scorecard would be gratefully received.
The Robinsons were all members of one family.
Source does not make clear which A Robinson (Arthur or AR) bowled for Eleven Robinsons, assumed to be Arthur as AR would have been given his full initials and Aleck is already bowling.
Source does not make clear which Garland was wicketkeeping for Backwell (and stumped E Robinson)
