This card comes from the Minor Counties Research Project
This close low-scoring match was won by Northumberland by two wickets at 4.35 pm on the second day. Needing 84 runs in their second innings to win, the visitors lost their eighth wicket at 66, but Marshall and Elsey saw them home to their first win in the Championship. For Staffordshire, W Brown's 78 contained 7 fours. The home team's second innings score of 43 was the third lowest of the season. Staffordshire only played two Championship matches in the season - home and away versus Northumberland - and did not qualify for the Competition Table.
