All the home matches in the scorebook were mainly played at Boughton Park, the ground which was used for the majority of Worcestershire home matches from 1865, the last match played there by the county was in 1902. The club moved to the New Road ground in 1896. Many matches particularly the later matches in 1892 and 1893 do not appear on search engines for matches played by the club. Worcestershire CCC was formed on 4 March 1865 at the Star Hotel in Worcester. The club owes much to Paul Foley. A player from 1878-1896, he was appointed club club secretary became involved with the club in the 1880s and helped to establish the Minor Counties Championship which began in 1895. Worcestershire shared the inaugural title with Durham and Norfolk before winning outright in 1896, 1897 and 1898. With this success behind it, the club applied for first-class status and entered the County Championship in 1899. Worcestershire CCC played its initial first-class match versus Yorkshire CCC on 4, 5 & 6 May 1899. The scorebook, with match scores written in a number of hands was purchased by a well known cricket writer approximately 40 years ago, who paid a pittance for it at a junk shop

M.C.C. under the captaincy of 'Gubby' Allen left Southampton for Australia on 12th September 1936, arriving at Perth via Colombo on the 13th October 1936. They played twenty five matches in Australia and a further three in New Zealand. Having started off the Test series well, winning the first two Tests, M.C.C, lost the remaining three Tests and so failed to regain the Ashes. England's failure can be attributed to a combination of poor batting and the brilliance of Don Bradman. The tour was a financial success due to the fluctuating nature of the Tests and broke all records with receipts amounting to £90,909 with over 900,000 people attending. Bradman made 82 in the 2nd Test, 270 in the 3rd Test, 212 in the 4th Test and 169 in the fifth Test
