Profile

WATSON, MR. ARTHUR KENELM, who died at Harrow on January 2, aged 79, played for Harrow in 1884 and 1885. In his second match against Eton he played a great innings of 135, and with Eustace Crawley added 235 for the second wicket in two hours and three-quarters. Harrow won by three wickets within two minutes of time. He was awarded the Ebrington Cup for fielding. An Oxford Blue in 1889, he failed in a disastrous match at Lord's, Cambridge winning by an innings and 105 runs; he was also disappointing for Middlesex before playing in turn for Norfolk and Suffolk. He was a master at Rugby School.
