Profile

Sidney Webb, who was born at Brompton, in Middlesex, on February 1, 1874, died at Ilford on April 4. For a few seasons he was successful as a right-hand medium-paced bowler, but it cannot be said that he ever took quite the place in the game that seemed likely. He played for Middlesex in 1897 and 1898, and in his first match for the County--against Notts at Trent Bridge--took ten wickets for 101 runs, seven of them in the first innings for 56. Between 1899 and 1903 he appeared for Lancashire, and among his various feats for that side may be mentioned his seven for 12 runs v. Hampshire at Manchester in 1900, eight for 36 v. M. C. C. at Lord's and seven for 17 v. Kent, both in 1902. Altogether he took 270 wickets for Lancashire for 18.59 runs each. Twice he bowled unchanged through both innings of his opponents--v. Hampshire in 1900 and v. Kent a year later, in each case at Old Trafford. He joined the ground-staff at Manchester in June, 1897, after engagements at Newport (Mon.) and with Somerset County (a year and a half) at Taunton.
