USA Cricket History: Tour Report of America's first victorious tour of England in 1884
by DreamCricket USA
Sep 14, 2008
Philadelphia tour of England, Scotland and Ireland.

A painstakingly compiled record of the historical American tour of Ireland, Scotland and England with pictures, all eighteen scorecards and match reports.

By Venu Palaparthi - DreamCricket.com

In 1881/82, on just the third Australian tour of England, the Aussies defeated England in England! A rare feat. Inspired by that achievement, on May 17th 1884, the fourteen Gentlemen of Philadelphia, or Argonauts as they called themselves, boarded the City of Rome at Sandy Hook embarking on the first ever tour of Ireland and England under the captaincy of Robert Newhall. $8,200 was raised to make this possible (equivalent of some $100,000 today).

The Philadelphians believed in the premise that to really become a cricketing force, they had to play in England. "They will throughout their wanderings, from the first match by the shadow of the Dublin castle to the last contest on the plains of Kent, not only meet with a royal reception, but the best amateur opposition that Great Britain affords...on their own tented fields and at their own national sport," Harper's Weekly noted on May 24, 1884. Adding, in a reference to the Ashes of 1882, that the "suggestion of assailing her (England) at the sport in which she has excelled since the time of the Virgin Queen was, until very recently, thought to savor more of buncombe than of a purpose firm, equal to the deed."

The tour was arranged through the good offices of Henry Perkins, Secretary of Marylebone Cricket Club together with Lord Harris (of Harris Shield fame), and I.D. Walker Esq. On this tour, including Scotland and Ireland, the Philadelphian cricketers won 8 matches, lost five and drew five matches. In England alone, they won 6 matches and lost 4 playing against top and second tier teams. This was a spectacular effort that drew praise from WG Grace who played for the Gloucester side that lost to the visitors!

GOP at Ireland and Scotland

Gentlemen of Philadelphia (GOP) started the tour in Dublin against Dublin University at College Park (Dublin) on 2nd and 3rd of June, 1884 - a match that was drawn after both sides scored exactly the same score (181) in the first innings and there was no time for the second innings to be completed.

Gentlemen of Philadelphia (GOP) Tally: Played 1, Drawn 1.

Following the match at College Park, on June 4th and 5th, the Gentlemen of Philadelphia played played the Irish side at the private grounds of the Lord-Lieutenant. Five of the Gentlemen of Ireland, had recently toured USA. The GOP won this match by a two wicket margin and they proceeded to Scotland from here to whom they lost by 5 wickets in a match played at Edinburgh.

Gentlemen of Philadelphia (GOP) Tally: Played 3, Won 1, Lost 1, Drawn 1.

GOP at Scarborough, England

From Scotland, they proceeded to the land of cricket - England. Playing at Scarborough, in Yorkshire, on the 13th and 14th of June, the Gentlemen of Philadelphia scored a mammoth 438 all out on Day 1. David Stoever and William Brockie scored 100 and 113 respectively while the captain Robert Newhall led from the front with a nicely compiled 86. Joseph Scott scored a glorious 63 striking form that stayed with him throughout this tour. They now set out to win the match. After dismissing Scarborough for 138 runs in the first innings, they had them following on. But it was a race against time and the home side managed to end the day on 235 for 6 thanks to "yeoman" effort by SF Yeoman who was not out on 44.

Gentlemen of Philadelphia (GOP) Tally: Played 4, Won 1, Lost 1, Drawn 2.

GOP at Lord's against MCC

With that kind of a start to the campaign, they entered the hallowed Lord's ground where they played the MCC on 16th and 17th. Here they received a drubbing at the hands of the Marylebone Cricket Club. One man, Charles Studd, did most of the damage as MCC won by an innings and 171 runs. Studd scored 106 for MCC and then followed that up with a 6 wicket haul. Studd played for England in the 1882 Ashes and his name is on the Ashes urn ("When Ivo goes back with the urn, the urn; Studds, Steel, Read and Tylecote return, return"). For the Americans, Joseph Scott continued to impress with 40 in the first innings.

Gentlemen of Philadelphia (GOP) Tally: Played 5, Won 1, Lost 2, Drawn 2.

GOP at Cheshire - First victory in England

Following that humbling experience at Lord's, they hung around in London for a brief two day sojourn, and then proceeded to Stockport to face the Gentlemen of Cheshire. Here the Americans were determined to spring right back. They so completely destroyed their opponents - it was as though they wanted to erase any memory of a loss at Lord's. The margin of victory was an innings and 292 runs. Batting first, the Americans scored 520 runs on day 1, the batting honors were shared by Joseph Scott (64), John Thayer (63), Robert Newhall (126). The GOP clobbered the home side dismissing them for 83 and 145 before the day ended. This marked their first victory in cricket's mother country.

Gentlemen of Philadelphia (GOP) Tally: Played 6, Won 2, Lost 2, Drawn 2.

GOP vs Leicestershire, England

Against the Gentlemen of Leicestershire, the Philadelphians were in sparkling form. In the two day match, after choosing to bat first, which they had now understood was the only way to get a win in a two day match, the Philadelphians scored 260 in the first innings with a splendid 53 coming from the blade of Brewster. The GOP then knocked out Leicestershire for 57 and 95.

Gentlemen of Philadelphia (GOP) Tally: Played 7, Won 3, Lost 2, Drawn 2.

GOP vs Hampshire, England

With 3-2 record after 7 matches, and another 11 matches to go, they were on a high when they went to Hampshire and they were happy to meet an old friend there - Major Wallace. Major Wallace, when he was based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, had first invited Philadelphia to the Halifax Cup, a cricketing tradition that continued for many years. A solid Hampshire team awaited GOP on this tour. After doing well on day 1 conceding a small 13 run lead in the first innings, day 2 did not go as well for the GOP and they collapsed for 97. The home team scored the needed runs with 6 wickets to spare.

Gentlemen of Philadelphia (GOP) Tally: Played 8, Won 3, Lost 3, Drawn 2.

GOP defeats WG Grace's Gloucestershire

At Gloucestershire, the GOP achieved what could only be termed as a milestone for American cricket. Gloucestershire was Grace-land and WG Grace - the god of English cricket - played along with his brother in this match. The Philadelphians were unable to read WG Grace's bowling as is evident from his 14 wickets in this match - 7 Philadelphia wickets in each innings. Batting first, Robert Newhall (36) and Charles Newhall (25) helped Philadelphia reach 162 in the first innings.

The turning point came when Gloucestershire captain fell to Edward Clark on 41 caught stunningly by Thayer. Philadelphia's Edward Clark destroyed Gloucestershire taking 7 wickets and restricting them to just 94. The match was just getting exciting and John Thayer set the second innings on fire by scoring a cracking 50. Together with Robert Newhall (29) he helped Gentlemen of Philadelphia put 207 in the second innings - giving them a lead that was not surmountable. That is when Charles Newhall bowled a dramatic spell of 29 overs (4 ball overs), 18 maidens, 5 wickets for 24 including the prize wicket of WG Grace who succumbed for just 6 this time. The home side folded for 107. This was, with the exception of the MCC encounter, going to be the most important match on this tour and the Philadelphians had arrived on the world scene with this match. WG Grace, ever the gentleman, gifted his bat to Thayer in recognition of the catch that Thayer took in the first innings. Later on, he remembered that the GOP "gave a very fine batting display" but noted that their weak spot was bowling - a problem that he said plagued every amateur team of the time.

Gentlemen of Philadelphia (GOP) Tally: Played 9, Won 4, Lost 3, Drawn 2.

GOP vs Lansdown, England

In the match at Lansdown on 2nd and 3rd July 1884, the GOP drew when Lansdown batting first scored 311 and the Philadelphians matched their effort by scoring 319. It was a two day match and the match ended with Lansdown having just begun their second innings. Whereas EM Grace (89), playing again for his club, and Sainsbury (108) scored for Lansdown, it was Brewster (70) and Morgan (59) who took the Philadelphians to safe grounds.

Gentlemen of Philadelphia (GOP) Tally: Played 10, Won 4, Lost 3, Drawn 3.

GOP vs Castleton at Rochdale, England

In the American Independence Day match at the Butcher Meadow in Rochdale against Castleton, the fired up Americans stole a march over their opponents by winning convincingly by an innings and 16 runs margin. Batting first, the GOP scored 298 on the back of a great partnership between John Thayer(53) and Robert Newhall (64). Brewster was unfortunate to miss a 50. And even the tail-ender Sutherland Law scored 51. William Lowry then went on the attack taking 9 Castleton wickets for 51 in 30.1 (4 ball) overs. Castleton, following on from a dismal first innings tally of 84 were more resolute in the second but William Lowry continued to torment them, this time getting 6 wickets. Castleton ran out of steam on 198 giving the Americans a well deserved win. William Lowry was now on track for a record haul - he got 121 wickets on this tour.

Gentlemen of Philadelphia (GOP) Tally: Played 11, Won 5, Lost 3, Drawn 3.

GOP vs Liverpool

With a 5-3 tally the Americans were on a high when they arrived in Liverpool on July 7th where they played a tense two day match against the Gentlemen of Liverpool, which the visitors won by the narrowest of margins. Batting first, Philadelphia opener Joseph Scott continued to be in good nick scoring 93 even as wickets tumbled on the other end at regular intervals. After bowling the Americans out for 185, the Gentlemen of Liverpool lost the plot and other than HB Steel (77), nobody stuck on as the home side ended their innings at 169. Instead of playing for a draw, the Americans scored a quick 102 in the second innings setting Liverpool a target of 119 to win. It seemed like Liverpool had the game under control while Parr (46) and Potter (32) at the crease. But Lowry had other plans and, this time with a 6 wicket haul, Liverpool were left stranded on 114, just 5 runs shy of victory.

Gentlemen of Philadelphia (GOP) Tally: Played 12, Won 6, Lost 3, Drawn 3.

GOP vs Northumberland at Heaton, England

Gentlemen of Philadelphia were on a high with 6 wins and confident of winning the next one against Northumberland. Playing at Heaton, they scored 145 in the first innings and Lowry and MacNutt went on a rampage taking 5 Northumberland wickets each for 43 and 27 respectively, and the hapless homeside were dismissed for 74. In the second innings, the GOP scored 112 and once again, Lowry was in devastating form getting 6 Northumberland wickets for 33 from 29 overs (4 ball overs). GOP won this match by 96 runs.

Gentlemen of Philadelphia (GOP) Tally: Played 13, Won 7, Lost 3, Drawn 3.

GOP vs Derbyshire

The Gentlemen of Philadelphia had 5 more matches remaining as they headed to the cricketing heartland of Southern England. The remaining matches were against the best sides - Derbyshire, Surrey, Sussex, Kent and United Services. They also knew that one more win in England would have ensured that they would conclude the English leg on a victorious note, having won 5 matches in England until then.

In the match against Derbyshire on July 14th, Gentlemen of Philadelphia won the toss and chose to bat. Thayer was in superb form and hit a stroke filled 60 (8 fours) as the Philadelphians cored 157 in the first innings. William Lowry, once again, produced a miraculous spell of 6 for 61 as Derbyshire were dismissed for 141 giving a small lead of 16 runs. The Philadelphians scored a mammoth 254 runs in the second innings (Robert Newhall 71 and John Thayer 93) when just 150 were needed. With just enough time to bowl 39 overs, the match progressed towards a draw. But they still managed to finish the match on a high note and Derbyshire were on the mat losing 5 wickets with the score just reading 60.

Gentlemen of Philadelphia (GOP) Tally: Played 14, Won 7, Lost 3, Drawn 4.

GOP defeats Surrey!

GOP proceeded to Kennington Oval where they played a strong Surrey side on 17th and 18th July. The win they were seeking, that historical victory that would forever allow them to claim a victorious tour of England, could not have come against a better side. After losing the toss, the GOP were asked to field. Surrey batsmen did their job and put 190 on the board in quick time. WC Lowry got yet another haul of 5 wickets. GOP batting did not sparkle and they were bowled out for 154. Only Joseph Scott (26), Charles Newhall (26) and Sutherland Law (29) showed any patience. Despite losing a batsman, Wyld, who had to rejoin his regiment after the first innings, the Surrey second innings was a repeat of the first with FW Bush scoring 96 and the team putting up 189 which meant that the visitors had to score 226 to win, which was a tall order. GOP played a positive game and were unwilling to settle for a draw. Thayer(46) and MacNutt (75) produced spectacular performances and GOP reached 229 with 4 wickets to spare. Even WG Grace was impressed and thought that this was the best GOP innings on the tour. This victory gave the GOP campaign a reason to celebrate - with three matches left and 6 wins in hand against England, they not only were going down in the record books as the first American touring side to go to England, they were setting a record of sorts.

Gentlemen of Philadelphia (GOP) Tally: Played 15, Won 8, Lost 3, Drawn 4.

GOP fall to Sussex

From Surrey, the Philadelphians went to Hove where the mighty Sussex brought the spirited GOP back to the ground by inflicting a 10 wicket loss. Sussex won the toss and took the bat. They scored 302 in their first innings with RK Sampson scoring 61 and helpful contributions from RT Ellis (45) and CA Smith (33). Lowry, who had a spectacular tour thus far was ineffective in Hove. Dismissed for 181 in the first innings and following on, the GOP collapsed yet again for 164. With only 44 needed to win, Sussex reached their target without skipping a beat. Only Brockie showed any application for the GOP with scores of 56 and 24.

Gentlemen of Philadelphia (GOP) Tally: Played 16, Won 8, Lost 4, Drawn 4.

GOP lose another one to Kent

Playing all these matches without a break was going to have an effect sooner or later and as the fatigued team went to Kent, where the strong Gentlemen of Kent team was waiting for them, the effect was clear. The hosts won the all important toss and made hay against the tired Philadelphian bowlers, scoring 296 in the first innings. GOP were no match and showed no resistance putting up just 106 and even that score was only because of pragmatic batting by Stoever who accounted for 33.

Gentlemen of Philadelphia (GOP) Tally: Played 17, Won 8, Lost 5, Drawn 4.

GOP draws against United Services

The final match at Portsmouth against the United Services came after a 5 day break, enough for the Philadelphians to recharge. Playing twelve instead of eleven, the GOP put on 311 in the first innings. Francis Brewster and Sutherland Law scored half centuries (55 and 51 respectively) and the Newhall brothers were in good nick too with Charles scoring 48 and Robert getting 35 before retiring hurt. John Thayer too scored 48.

In reply, United Services scored 237. Playing twelve men in a two day match was surely not conducive to obtaining a result in a match. And the match ended in a draw with neither side completing their second innings. But for Joseph Scott, the second innings went as well as the rest of the tour, he was on 71 not out in a spectacular unbroken partnership of 136 runs with John Thayer who remained not out on 64. GOP was going strong on 160 for 1 in the match. With that tremendous performance, both the match and the historical tour came to an end.

Gentlemen of Philadelphia (GOP) Tally: Played 18, Won 8, Lost 5, Drawn 5.

The tour by the Argonauts was not only successful, they gained the respect of their English hosts. More importantly, players like Charles Newhall, William Lowry, Joseph Scott, Howard MacNutt and John Thayer showed that they had what it took to be a champion side on par with the best in the world. As George Newhall declared after this tour "Cricket in America is a fact." "We have shown unusual traits," he said adding that "Philadelphia (is) at present the head-quarters of cricket on this side of the Atlantic." It was especially memorable for William Lowry who tool 121 wickets at an average of roughly 13 with his left arm orthodox bowling and Joseph Scott, still less than 20 years of age, who scored 1054 runs on the tour.
