Other First-Class Match

In addition to the match played by Somerset, 2 other first-class matches have been played on the ground. These were between the West (of England) and M.C.C. on 5, 6 and 7 August 1844 and 18, 19 and 20 August 1845. In the first game the West had four given men (Pilch, Mynn, Wenman and Martingell) and won by 81 runs. In the second game they had three given men (Pilch, Box and Mynn) and won by an innings and 94 runs.

The following ground records were set during these two matches :

Lowest Innings Total: 40 M.C.C. v West 1844 Lowest Match Aggregate: 283 - 40 West v M.C.C. 1844

Best Bowling Innings: 6- ? A.Mynn West v M.C.C. 1845 Best Bowling Match: 11- ? A.Mynn West v M.C.C. 1845

The number of runs conceded by A.Mynn when he took 6 wickets is not known but it seems likely that it was less than the 33 conceded by E.W.Bastard. W.R.Hillyer also took 6 wickets in an innings for an unknown number of runs in this match but in this case it is likely that he conceded more than 33 runs.
