|First-class span||1929 - 1936|
A steady right-handed opening batsman and brilliant outfielder, Reggie Northway played infrequently for Somerset between 1929 and 1933, making seventeen appearances. Northamptonshire signed him up for the 1936 season and he made another 17 appearances for them that year. Tragically, he was killed on the evening of Northamptonshire's last championship game of the season when the car he was driving left the road, and he was thrown into a ditch.
Brother of EG Northway (Somerset 1925-26, Royal Air Force 1928)

Do fast bowlers need verbal fisticuffs to generate aggression? Does sending a nightwatchman in always make sense? Is surpassing 100mph even possible?
Attacking play - particularly bowling - has been the team's hallmark down the decades, but not anymore it would seem
The boy from Burnley with magic in his wrist has surpassed all before him - with luck we will be able to enjoy his skill and application for a few more years yet
Azhar Ali's early steps in captaincy will be analysed extensively but he needs time to step out of the large shadows of Misbah-ul-Haq and Shahid Afridi
For New Zealand's wild child, there is probably no better place than county cricket right now
His current game is extremely premeditated, so as to delay taking risks, and it robs the innings of all natural flow
