This match was drawn. For Hertfordshire, Golding's 62 included 10 fours. For the visitors, Page's 66 not out contained 11 fours and Relf's 63 included 9 fours. In the Norfolk second innings, Garnier and Page had an unbroken partnership of 100 runs for the seventh wicket. The Norfolk second innings of 275 for 6 wickets was the highest fourth innings of the season and a new record for the Championship, beating the 263 for 5 wickets scored by Northumberland v Northamptonshire at Northampton in 1896. The Hertfordshire scorebook contains the following comment "The match was left drawn on the second day at 5.30 pm as arranged -- it could not be completed in that time, when the fourth [Norfolk] wicket fell at 102. Some big hitting [reckless] characterised the remainder of play." None of the other sources listed makes reference to the match ending at 5.30 pm. Indeed, there is some criticism in Norfolk sources of the Hertfordshire captain for taking too long in organising frequent bowling changes, with the object of playing for time. For the purpose of calculating the averages of both teams, the score as presented here has been used.
[Missing: Umpires; in Norfolk 2nd inns who bowled 4 no balls.]
