A total of 78,681 people came into the ground and receipts of £3,702, 2s & 3d were unprecedented and only exceeded 21 years later when Roy Kilner collected £4016, 19s & 3d.

Ernest Smith, missed before he had scored, was bowled by James Hallows for 98. Hirst made 65, John Tunnicliffe 55 and Lord Hawke 54. Hirst removed MacLaren, Reggie Spooner and Johnny Tyldesley in his first three overs and finished with six for 42 as Lancashire were all out for 173 in response to Yorkshire's 403.
