June 1871 match vs Richmond

Saturday 24 June - Melbourne Ground

Melbourne 0
Richmond 0

Match drawn

The junior Richmond club was supposed to play with 20 against Melbourne's 15, but the home side could only field 13. They carried on regardless, but were restricted to a draw. The few spectators present didn't see either team even remotely threaten a goal.

It was reported later that a number of Richmond fans spent the game abusing and issuing threats to Melbourne's players.
