This match was drawn after Hertfordshire had followed on 131 runs in arrears. For the visitors, there were 12 fours, 3 threes and 10 twos in Golding's match-saving second innings of 100 not out, scored in under 3 hours. Hills's 54 included 2 fours. For the home team, H E Kingston's 67 included 6 fours, Thompson's 65 contained 3 fours, and Horton's 54 not out included 2 fours. Thompson and H E Kingston put on 117 runs for the Northamptonshire fourth wicket, which was the third highest partnership for that wicket during the season. The six dismissals made by Smith were the most by a wicket-keeper in a match during the season, a feat equalled by two others. The 48 overs bowled by White were the most during the season in an innings, and the 112 runs he conceded were the equal third highest of the season.
