This card comes from the Minor Counties Research Project
Worcestershire won this return match by an innings shortly before 4.00 pm on the second day, after Staffordshire followed on 118 runs behind.
Worcestershire had also won when the two teams met at Stoke-on-Trent in July.
On the first day, play did not start until just before 1.00 pm due to the late arrival of the Staffordshire team.
There was a rain-interruption of an hour towards the end of the Worcestershire innings, and rain ended play early at 6.00 pm.
For the winners, there was 1 six and 12 fours in Jobson's 88 not out, and 1 five and 8 fours in E G Bromley-Martin's 50, their partnership adding 77 runs for the seventh wicket in the Worcestershire innings.
The Staffordshire second innings total of 23 and the match aggregate of 289 runs for a completed match were both the lowest of the season.
