Final (at the Kennington Oval)
Sat Mar 16 Wanderers1-0Royal Engineers


Following drawn matches between Crystal Palace and Hitchin in Round 1 and Wanderers and Crystal Palace in Round 3 no replay was staged and all the clubs went through to the following round. This was covered by Rule 8 of the competition which stated 'In the case of a drawn match the Clubs shall be drawn in the next ties or shall compete again, at the discretion of the Committee.'


After having been given a bye from the Third Round into the Semi's because of travelling distances, Queen's Park scratched rather than play a semi-final replay against Wanderers, being unable to travel to the Kennington Oval again for the second match.
