Referee - John Reid
Ireland (Irish FA)

Linesmen - according to the Daily Telegraph - Richard Philip Gregson, 41 (early 1853), (Lancashire FA secretary) according to the Glasgow Herald - Nicholas Lane Jackson, 44 (1 November 1849), West Hackney, London (Corinthians FC & FA Hon. Secretary) & Mr A. Sliman (Scottish FA Chairman)

Ugly scenes had marred this match when ticketless fans had stormed a barricade and in the ensuing confusion some had been injured; while others, including many pressmen, had been displaced from their allocated seats.  The whole incident had said much about the rising intensity of supporters' passions, but also, rather more worryingly, the inability of the authorities to successfully manage large crowds. - England Expects: James Corbett

team notes:

Original centre-forward John Southworth withdrew from the original line-up because of a knee injury. His place went to GO Smith. Clare replaced Burnley FC's Jimmy Crabtree at right-back. Ernest Needham replaced Bolton Wanderers FC's James Turner. Cunliffe Gosling was the original Captain and inside-left, Edgar Chadwick being drafted in to replace him. Goodall was instead, handed the captaincy.
"Several players with claims to be considered in connection with international honours are at present unsound, and as the match does not take place for more than three weeks, the Committee reserve to themselves the right to make any changes they deem fit. The team will be definitely selected at a meeting to be held at Liverpool at noon on Saturday, March 31."
Jack Reynolds had already played five times for the Irish team, scoring once (1890-91 (two appearances and one goal against England))
