--> FG Saunders made his last appearance in Minor Counties Championship matches

A declaration asking Bucks to make 245 in 180 minutes was too stiff a task and after a brisk openeing stand
the shutters went up. Nurton hit 1 x 5 and 6 x 4 in his 55, Lane-Fox 9 x 4 in his 68 and Talboys 9 x 4 in his 54.
Nurton's second half century contained 6 x 4.
