Profile

Noah Mann was an outstanding allrounder - a left-hand batsman and fast-medium bowler - who made 55 known first-class appearances from 1777 to 1789. Mann, short and swarthy, was extremely athletic and Haygarth recounts how he "could cover an immense deal of ground, darting about like lightning". He could also perform extraordinary feats of agility on horseback, being able to pick up from the ground handkerchiefs while going at full speed. He was said to ride 20 miles each way on horseback to practice on Tuesdays.
