Sid Emery, the former Australian bowler, died in hospital in Sydney on January 7, aged 80. Born on October 16, 1886, he was a fine medium-pace googly
bowler who came to the fore for New South Wales in 1909-10 with 7 for 28 v Victoria at Melbourne. He played in only 15 Shield matches, taking 60 wickets at 24.65. He was a member of the 1912 Australian side in England, though after a good start he had no outstanding success. He played in his only Tests that summer - two against England and two against South Africa in the Triangular Tournament. He was also a member of the Australian team that made a long tour of North America and Bermuda in 1913, when he scored over 1,000 runs and
took over 100 wickets.
