Chris Schofield's five wicket haul helped Surrey to register a comprehensive win over Northamptonshire. Northamptonshire added 37 runs to their overnight score but victory for Surrey never looked in doubt.
The home side started the last day needing 132 runs to make the visitors bat again, but they never got close. Schofield was simply too difficult to get away for the Northamptonshire batsmen as he spun a web of deceit and guile around the home side. Wickets continued to tumble and though Johannes van der Wath played an aggressive cameo his aggression led to his dismissal. Schofield was the man who responsible for his downfall. Other notable contributions for Northamptonshire were Andrew Hall who made 45 and Peters who made a patient half century.
