Profile

Edward Wentworth Dillon was a brilliant left-handed batsman when at Rugby and Oxford University before doing splendid service for Kent, his county experiences extending altogether from 1900 to 1913. He practically finished his county career by his leading Kent to the championship, so repeating an achievement which stood to his name in 1909 and 1910. In this way Dillon surpassed the efforts of any of his Kent predecessors. In fact, not until C. H. B. Marsham succeeded J. R. Mason--an outstanding personality in the game for several years--did Kent first secure the honours in 1906. Yet Mason resumed as leader for the last month of the 1909 season, when Dillon stopped playing for business reasons--often a preventive of continuous cricket for him. These great cricketers had with them K. L. Hutchings--a superb batsman and fieldsman--the brothers S. H. and A. P. Day, Frank Woolley, Humphreys, Colin Blythe--taker of 178 wickets at 14 runs apiece--Arthur Fielder, Fred Huish and D. W. Carr.
