Profile

Charterhouse educated Tommy Garnett was a middle-order amateur batsman whose first-class career would probably have been limited to one outing against Cambridge University in 1935 had he not answered an SOS from Somerset in August 1939 as they struggled to raise an XI with many regulars already having joined up with war looming. A talented sportsman, he had by then won the British Amateur Doubles Championships at Eton Fives.
