Staffordshire won this match by 10 wickets at 4.45 pm on the second day. There was a delayed start on the first day, as the visitors' train from Crewe did not reach Stoke until 11.46 am. The match was considerably interfered with by rain, which saw a late start also on the second day when play did not start until 2.30 pm.
Just over one hour into Tuesday's play and Staffordshire were left with 72 to get for victory, which they got without losing a wicket in exactly an hour's play.
