Stanley Saville, who died in an Eastbourne nursing home after a long illness on February 22, aged 76, gained his Blue as a batsman for Cambridge in four years from 1911 to 1914, being captain in the last season. He met with little success in the University matches, but he hit 101 against Free Foresters in 1913 and 141 not out from the Army bowling the following summer. He was in the Marlborough XI of 1907 and played a few times for Middlesex before and after the 1914 war. A fine hockey player at inside-right, Sammy Saville captained England and won 37 International caps at a time when matches were fewer than they are today. He had been President of the Hockey Association since 1951.
