GBR 5.5 USA 4.5 1 Blackburne ½ Pillsbury ½ 2 Locock 0 Showalter 1 3 Atkins 1 Burille 0 4 Lawrence 0 Barry 1 5 Mills ½ Hymes ½ 6 Bellingham ½ Hodges ½ 7 Blake 0 Delmar 1 8 Jackson 1 Helms 0 9 Cole, Henry 1 Teed 0 10 Jacobs 1 McCutcheon 0

The second match saw the rosters expand to ten players, which seemed to favor the British as their one-point victory was due in large part to a sweep on the bottom three boards.

The 1st Anglo-American Cable Match (1896) and 3rd Anglo-American Cable Match (1898) were the previous and next editions of this team match-up for the Newnes Cup.
