This card comes from the Minor Counties Research Project
Norfolk won this return game by an innings shortly before 4.00 pm on the second day after Cambridgeshire followed on 253 runs behind. The match at Cambridge in July between the two teams had been drawn. For the winners, there were 19 fours, 8 threes and 9 twos in Penn's 131 not out, scored in a little over two hours. Relf's 85 contained 13 fours. Relf's 4 catches in the Cambridgeshire second innings equals the record by a fielder, held by six players, including O G Radcliffe of Wiltshire who achieved the feat earlier in the season. For Cambridgeshire, Jones top-scored with 75. Watts's hands were unfit for him to keep wicket for Cambridgeshire. In the Norfolk innings Fryer injured a finger which caused his retirement. J A Berners held the substitute catch in the visitors' second innings. The Cambridgeshire first innings total of 56 was the third lowest of the season.
