Profile

Neville Miller was a notable figure in London club cricket. He was a member of Streatham for 74 years, being captain for 26 and president for over 30. He was also a President of the Club Cricket Conference. During his 42 years as player for Streatham he scored 36,182 runs, average 48, hit 88 hundreds and took 1,518 wickets, average 15. Altogether he hit 96 hundreds, including 124 against Sussex at Brighton in 1899 on his debut in first-class cricket for Surrey when in an emergency he deputised for Tom Hayward. He also appeared in the same season for Surrey when, by 104 runs, they inflicted upon Billy Murdoch's Australians one of the three defeats they suffered in 35 fixtures. Miller learnt his cricket at Dulwich College and was in the XI from 1890 to 1892. He served with the Imperial Yeomanry in the South African War when he was wounded and in the First World War he gained the MC as a Major in the Royal Warwickshire Regiment. In the Second World War, Miller, who never married, was an active member of the Home Guard in Streatham, where he resided.
