June 1866 match vs Civil Service

Saturday 16 June - Melbourne Ground

Civil Service 1
Melbourne 0

Match drawn

Many of the Civil Service team were also Melbourne players - including Henry Harrison and they kicked the only goal of the day. Wet and slippery conditions contributed to no other goals being scored before play was ended, and as such the match was declared a draw.

Best were Theophilis Marshall, Bill Gorman and William Riggall.

Selected team
Conway, Riggall, Hewitt, Jellett, Waugh, R. Waugh, Guy, Hilsden, Nichols, Neal, Lock, Gorman, D. Campbell, W. Campbell, Rankin, Marshall, Ogilvie, Serrell, Davidson

Some sources say the game took place on the Richmond Paddock.
