DAY, MR. SAMUEL HULME, died at Chobham, Surrey, on February 21, aged 71. Captain of the Malvern College XI in 1897 and 1898, he obtained his Blue at Cambridge as a Freshman and played in the four Varsity matches of 1899 to 1902. In 1901 he led Cambridge, and in 1902 he made 117 not out against Oxford. A stylish batsman, who cut and drove to the off with special skill, Mr. Day played for Kent from 1897 to 1919 and scored 5,893 runs. While still at Malvern College he scored a century, 101 not out, against Gloucestershire at Cheltenham in his first county match, a unique feat. Sammy Day was also an excellent inside-forward at Association football. He played for Cambridge University in 1901, and in 1903 he helped Corinthians beat Bury, the Cup holders, by 10 goals to 3 and win the Sheriff of London Charity Shield. In 1906 he played in three Internationals for England.
