Profile

Ron Giles played for Nottinghamshire either side of the war, but his most success in a career which spanned 23 season came in the early 1950s when he formed part of a solid opening pair with Reg Simpson. After making his debut in 1937, he held down a place in the side in 1939 and continued intermittently from 1946, but without any marked success.
