John Edrich completed 100 first-class hundreds in this match. This scorecard agrees with the version published in the Surrey CCC yearbook. It shows that Geoff Howarth was John Edrich's partner when he completed his 100th 100. Some sources have claimed that Graham Roope was Edrich's partner at the time, although it is believed that Roope was actually acting as runner for Howarth. The matter is of interest because Roope was definitely Geoffrey Boycott's partner when Boycott completed his 100th first-class hundred later in the same season.
