Profile

Richard Hill, who died on October 5, aged 58, was in the Winchester XI in 1918 and 1919, being contemporary with such players as D. R. Jardine and C. T. Ashton. An opening batsman, he headed the averages in 1918, scoring 362 runs at 51.71 per innings. Though taking part in trials, he did not get a cricket Blue at Cambridge, but he represented the University at royal tennis and, from 1920 to 1922, at rackets. He appeared for Middlesex for several seasons, his highest score being 50 against Gloucestershire at Bristol in 1927, he and J. W. Hearne sharing in a sixth-wicket stand of 147. For many years he reported rackets, lawn tennis and cricket for The Times.
