Norfolk won this return match by an innings and 25 runs on the second day. The encounter between the two teams the week before at Gateshead had ended in a draw. A thunderstorm delayed play for 100 minutes shortly after Norfolk commenced their innings. Shore for the winners took 16 wickets in the match for 72 runs, including all 10 wickets in the Durham first innings for 50 runs. These were statistically both the best innings and the best match bowling performances of the season and a record for the Championship. When Shore bowled Elliot in the Durham first innings, he took his one hundredth wicket in a Championship match. He was the third player to achieve this feat, after Nash of Buckinghamshire and Arnold of Worcestershire. The run aggregate for the match of 313 was the lowest of the season for a completed match.
