This card comes from the Minor Counties Research Project - research is continuing on this scorecard which can be expected to change.
Yorkshire 2nd XI won this low-scoring match by ten wickets at 1.55 pm on the second day. The innings defeat was saved with the last wicket pair. together. For the winners, Broadbent took 11 wickets in the match for 77 runs. There were 1 six and 8 fours in Turner's 66. There had been a heavy shower early on the morning of the second day and when Staffordshire batted again on a rapidly drying pitch their batsmen were at a considerable disadvantage. During the Yorkshire first innings Nichols was badly hit by the ball while fielding and had to leave the field. Hardisty acted as substitute fielder and caught Broadbent. Original reports had Nichols bowled Drake in the Staffordshire first innings, but this was subsequently corrected to hit wicket. S F Barnes was away playing in the Gentlemen v Players match at Lord's.
