The 12th Anglo-American Cable Match (1910) was the previous edition of this team match-up. Three times before, a team had been on the brink of gaining perpetual possession of the Newnes Cup. The fourth time was a charm.

It was the top half of the team which really let the Americans down this time, as Marshall, Barry and Voigt, heroes of many previous matches, all lost their games. First-time players Walcott and Neill also lost, killing any chance of a comeback. (By the way, Neill's name is usually given as <B Milnes>, but this was actually a pseudonym of Benjamin Milnes Neill.)
