** Other sources have that Franz H. Thibodo played instead of Whittaker. I have chosen to go with the line up given in “York Herald” for September 21, 1891.
** There is also different goalscorer given for the Canadians. Senkler in some sources and even Bowman. Again I have chosen to go with the match report in the York Herald.
