USA 5.5 GBR 4.5 1 Pillsbury ½ Lawrence ½ 2 Barry ½ Mason ½ 3 Marshall 0 Atkins 1 4 Hodges 1 Lee 0 5 Hymes ½ Mills ½ 6 Voigt ½ Bellingham ½ 7 Delmar 0 Trenchard 1 8 Newman ½ Blake ½ 9 Howell 1 Michell 0 10 Helms 1 Girdlestone 0

The United States started a new winning streak, in a year that saw regulars like Blackburne, Jackson, Jacobs and Showalter missing. Some new blood had to be found, and the USA replacements worked out better. An unusual feature saw Pillsbury and Marshall, who had just finished at the Monte Carlo (1902) event, hopping across the Channel and playing their games over-the-board in London.

The 6th Anglo-American Cable Match (1901) and 8th Anglo-American Cable Match (1903) were the previous and next editions of this team match-up for the Newnes Cup.
