Profile

Tom Bartley stood as an umpire in six Test matches between 1954 and 1956. He played with considerable success for Cheshire from 1933 till the outbreak of the Second World War and also did well in League cricket. The best fast bowler ever to take part in the Liverpool Competition, he achieved some notable feats for Birkenhead Park, including six hat-tricks and the taking of 138 wickets in 1935 - still a record for the Competition. In that season he took all ten wickets for 37 runs against New Brighton, and during his career took nine in an innings on nine occasions. For Cheshire in 1934 he dismissed four Denbighshire batsmen with following deliveries. After one season as a second-class umpire, he was in 1948 placed on the first-class list where he remained till ill-health compelled his retirement in 1962.
