--> W Squires retired hurt in the Leicester first innings having scored 0 (team had lost 4 wickets) - he returned at the fall of the 9th wicket

It is not known why H Bolsover refused to play on, perhaps a doubtful umpire decision, but he was shown absent in the second innings.
A Girling acted as a runner for W Squires despite not playing in the match
Harry Deacon (1) batted for 'nearly two hours'
T Marsden (1) batted for 'about 20 minutes'
H Hall (1) batted for 'nearly three hours'
J Hall fielded substitute for W Squires in both innings
J Dearman fielded substitute for H Bolsover
