Norfolk won this return match at 4.45 pm on the second day by nine wickets, thus reversing the defeat suffered at Bishop's Stortford in July. For Hertfordshire, there were 9 fours in Titchmarsh's 74. In the Hertfordshire first innings C Pigg and Titchmarsh added 110 runs for the sixth wicket. For Norfolk Fryer's 59 not out included 7 fours and Sandwith's 53 contained 4 fours. Fryer's 59 not out was the highest fourth innings score by a batsman. In the Norfolk first innings, Sandwith and Page put on 67 runs for the seventh wicket. C Pigg was injured twice in the Hertfordshire first innings, on both occasions when hit by balls from Morley. First, when his score was 3 and the total 61-4. He subsequently returned to bat at the fall of the fifth wicket, and again at 199 when a ball from Morley cut him above the eye and he needed 'surgical treatment'. He batted lower down the order in the second innings. Blake did not keep wicket for Norfolk on the second day, and his duties were taken over first by Fryer and then Buxton. Austin did not arrive at the ground until the second day.
