team notes:

"Generally speaking it was a very unsatisfactory sort of game. There were too many 'incidents' and injuries, and the unsportsmanlike attitude of the spectators, who cheered each time an English player had to be attended by the trainer, did not tend to improve matters. Jack Bowers, who scored England's third goal, was off the field for a short time with an injured knee."
