This match was drawn after Staffordshire had been set a victory target of 326 runs in 3 hours. Press reports suggest that Orr delayed the declaration to allow T A Brown to reach his century which prevented Bedfordshire winning. For the visitors, there were 15 fours, 1 three and 1 two in T A Brown's 101 not out, an innings of 1 hour and 40 minutes. In the Bedfordshire second innings T A Brown and Moss added 90 runs for the seventh wicket, which was the second highest partnership for that wicket during the season. The Staffordshire second innings total of 211 for 8 wickets was the highest fourth innings total of the season. Hollowood's 87 for Staffordshire included 14 fours. It was the highest score during the season by a batsman in the fourth innings of a match. In the Staffordshire second innings Anderson kept wicket after Rowe hurt a hand. The 4 catches held by Wharmby in the Staffordshire first innings equalled the Championship record achieved by a fielder on 12 previous occasions.
