Profile

George Harold Shepstone, a free hitter and good fast bowler, died at Johannesburg on July 3, 1940 aged 63. Born at Pietermaritzburg on April 9, 1876, he was educated at Repton, and played in the eleven in 1892-93. On returning to South Africa, he took part in two, representative matches at Johannesburg; in March 1896 against Lord Hawke's first English team, and in February 1899 against the second team taken to South Africa by the Yorkshire captain, his scores being 21, 9, 8 and 0. In 1904 he came to England with the team captained by Frank Mitchell, but played little owing to illness. Shepstone appeared for Transvaal from 1898 to 1905, his highest score being 104 against Griqualand West at Cape Town in April 1898.
