Upton (W)

Medway (L)

(Porter’s Spirit of the Times: “There was no playing between the Medway and Upton Clubs, …, owing to the unfavorable weather.  The original plan of playing one hundred tallies was abandoned, the Medway Club acknowledging themselves beaten, and the Upton Club receiving the prize of $1000.”)

The Worcester Spy, Oct. 3, 1860 has more on this game, which spread out over 4 days. It was originally to be played to 100 runs, but was ended by mutual consent.
