Set 263 to win in two and an half hours, Northumberland achieved their victory by five wickets with 10 minutes to spare. For the winners, debutant Clayton's 112 included 1 six, 17 fours, 2 threes and 7 twos, while Simpson's 64 contained 13 fours and Hansell's 51 9 fours. Clayton and Simpson put on 134 runs for the first wicket in the second Northumberland innings. It was the highest first wicket partnership of the season. The visitor's score of 263-5 was the highest fourth innings total of the season and Clayton's 112 the highest individual innings. Both were records for the competition. For the home team, Colson's 119 contained 13 fours, 4 threes and 6 twos. There were 7 fours in Thompson's 67, and 9 fours in H E Kingston's 59. Colson and H E Kingston put on 120 for the third wicket in Northamptonshire's second innings. The Northamptonshire second innings total of 412-7 wickets declared was the highest of the season, and equalled their score of 412 all out against Durham at Northampton in May. The 145 runs conceded by Elsey in the game was the highest number in a match during the season. Nine bowlers were tried by Northumberland during the game. The match aggregate of 985 runs was also the highest of the season and a record for the Championship.
