Profile

SHIPSTON, FRANK WILLIAM, died on July 6, 2005, three weeks before his 99th birthday, when he was believed to be the world's oldest first-class cricketer. Shipston joined the Nottinghamshire staff in 1925, and played 49 matches for them before leaving in 1933 to join the police. Overall, Shipston averaged less than 19, but did score two centuries, both in 1932. He had a stint as a first-class umpire in 1956 before returning to Trent Bridge, where he coached for the next decade.
