Extract from the edition of 3 June 1927, covering just this match :
Grass football pitches in Germany are a rarity, but in the second game at Dusseldorf, against the well-known Turn and Rasensports Club, a much better surface was provided, the pitch here being similr to our cinder racing tracks. This was the most important game of the series, and a particularly fine contest was provided, the Hampstead players being at top form and giving a superlative display against worthy opponents. After being two goals down Hampstead rallied in fine style, eventually equalising and being considered unfortunate in not winning outright. Smy and Smith scored for Hampstead. Although several other English amateur teams, including Cambridge University, have visited and played this strong and important German football club since the war, Hampstead have the honour of being the only English side to escape defeat there, and they were warmly congratulated by the German Press and football authorities on this achievement.
[The team is assumed from the squad of 14 named in the report on the previous match, given that this was the most important game of the three.]
