Profile

Leslie Thompson, who died in Canada on April 23, 1990, aged 81, played in six matches as an amateur for Middlesex in the seasons immediately after the Second World War. A swing bowler with the ability to move the ball both ways, and often late, he took three of his five first-class wickets (average 49.60) on début, against Northamptonshire at Lord's, when he also made the match safe for Middlesex by coming in at the fall of the ninth wicket and playing a maiden over. Most of his cricket was played for the Ealing club, for whom he took 100 wickets 11 times and 2,571 in all at a cost of 12.97. He played fairly regularly for the Middlesex Second Eleven, whom he occasionally captained.
