Profile

Stuart Symington, a seam bowler and reasonable middle-order batsman, captained Leicestershire in 1949 in what his only full season of first-class cricket. He played for the county in the war - his first outing came as a 17-year-old - and he made his first-class debut in 1948 when he played twice. In 1949 Leicestershire were in need of a new captain and, as dictated by financial and social rules of the time, he had to be an amateur. Symington was a perfect and willing candidate.
