The flag at Somerset Cricket Club in Bermuda is flying at half-mast this week in honour of tge late all-rounder, Winton (Timmy) Edwards, whose "legacy will live on forever through his extraordinary exploits in Cup Match". Edwards died earlier this week following a bout with illness, aged 79.

The left-arm fast bowler and right-handed opening batsman represented Somerset in Cup Match between 1948 and 1962 and is best remembered for his unbeaten 170 achieved in the West End in 1950 that surpassed the previous highest individual score in the classic set by team-mate Lloyd Simmons (146) the year before at the newly opened Somerset Cricket Club ground.

The Royal Gazette has the story in full.
