This was the game against Cambridge University at Southampton in which two other players made their single appearance for the county, Arnold Page Rutherford and Francis Gordon Turner. Yaldren was one of eight bowlers used as Cambridge amassed 484. He took 1-52 off nine overs and, batting at 11, was run out for 8. In Cambridge's second innings he bowled two overs for eight runs.
