Linesmen - J. Black, Scotland and G. Wagstaffe Simmons, Hertfordshire FA, England.

The record crowd is all the more remarkable because the railway companies were not running 'specials', that is, cheap services to Mount Florida, due to the coal strike that had slowed Britain since February.
The strike would end within two weeks after this match, having an enormous effect on the numbers that perished when the RMS Titanic sank on 15 April.
