This match ended as a draw, after Northumberland had followed on 115 runs behind on first innings. Rain interrupted play before lunch on the second day and, according to newspaper reports, made the pitch "more lively". For the home team, Relf's 103 included 14 fours, 5 threes and 5 twos, and lasted 90 minutes. McCormick's 78 contained 8 fours, Bathurst's 63 included 11 fours, and Sandwith's 62 contained 5 fours. In the Norfolk innings, Sandwith and McCormick put on 105 for the third wicket, and Relf and Bathurst 137 for the fifth wicket. Page's 5 dismissals in the match was the equal highest of the season, being equalled later in the season by C E Cobb for Buckinghamshire v Oxfordshire at Oxford. His 3 stumpings in the match was a feat achieved by four other wicket-keepers during the season. For Northumberland, Chambers's 82, scored in 3 hours and 10 minutes, contained 14 fours, and Hansell's 57 included 10 fours. In the Northumberland first innings, Thompson and Chambers put on 109 runs for the first wicket. Shore's 52 overs in the Northumberland first innings were the joint third highest number bowled in an innings during the season.
