This match counted for Northamptonshire in Championship - but not Durham who did not qualify (individual records count)
Northamptonshire won by an innings on the second day, after Durham followed-on 196 runs behind. The debutant Pool scored 157 for the winners, an innings containing 20 fours, 1 three and 11 twos, scored in 3 hours. It was a new record for the competition, exceeding the 153 scored by J W Welford for Durham v Staffordshire at Stoke-on-Trent in July the previous year.
Pool was to lose his record to H K Foster of Worcestershire, who was to beat the record twice in July. In the home team's innings, Scriven and F Smith added 62 runs for the last wicket. The innings total of 412 was equal highest of the season to their own 412-7 declared v Northumberland at Northampton. Gregory's 58 for the losers included 1 five and 7 fours and J F Whitwell's 53 contained 6 fours. For Durham the first innings partnership of 72 runs between Lee and Gregory was the highest of the season for the seventh wicket. The 43 extras conceded in the Northamptonshire innings were the most both in an innings and in a match during the season. When the Northamptonshire score was 293-6 wickets, Lambert, the Durham wicket-keeper, was hit by a rising ball from Crosby and was forced to retire with a damaged hand. He was unable to bat in either Durham innings and J F Whitwell took his place behind the stumps. By arranging 8 Championship matches, Northamptonshire qualified for inclusion in the Competition Table for the first time.
