Profile

Malcolm Gurney Salter, who died on June 15, aged 86, was a phenomenal schoolboy batsman, who, although he was five years in the Cheltenham XI, played for Oxford in 1909 and 1910 and for Gloucestershire from 1907 to 1925, never quite fulfilled his promise. In 1909 he and A. J. Evans began the 'Varsity match by putting up 115 for the first wicket in one hour. For Gloucestershire his best season was 1924 when, reappearing after a long absence in India, he came second in the averages, considerably strengthening a weak batting side.
