This card comes from the Minor Counties Research Project - research is continuing on this scorecard which can be expected to change.
This return match was drawn, with rain preventing any play before 4.40 on the first day.
The game between the two sides at Norwich earlier in the month had been won by Cambridgeshire.
Two local men umpired in the absence of the appointed officials.
For the home team, Swann-Mason's 65 contained 6 fours.
For Norfolk, Watson's 74 included 10 fours and Leman's 57 contained 4 fours.
In the Norfolk second innings they added 133 runs for the third wicket.
Hoare acted as the Norfolk Captain on the first day, as Barratt had gone to London on business, believing the rain would prevent any play on the first day.
