Due to the outbreak of war, The Oval had been commandeered, so the matches were played at Lord's. The match v Kent had been designated as Hobbs' benefit match and was scheduled for three days. However, Surrey won by eight wickets in just two days, Hobbs scoring 16 and 26no. The takings were disappointingly poor, so Surrey offered to defer Hobbs' benefit until after the war, which was played as the last fixture in the 1919 season. The match against Yorkshire was won by Surrey by an innings and 30 runs, Hobbs scoring 202
