AJ Nethercote himself making 16 runs only. Darwin made both his first hat-trick and the first hat-trick of the Nondescripts with the consecutive wickets of Compton, Coalface and Pitpony. The Nondescripts reply was led by Wooster scoring 61 runs, Holmes hitting 59 runs and Waugh who scored 50 runs before being clean bowled by Cheddar. Fort, a right handed batsman, hit the winning runs with consecutive sixes. The Nondescripts win by four wickets.
