Wisden obituary
Harold Watson played as a professional fast-medium bowler for Norfolk before and after the First World War. Making his first appearance in 1910, he altogether took 384 wickets, average 17.23. His best season was that of 1922, when he dismissed 59 batsmen for 14.37 runs each, and he helped his county to win the Minor Counties' Championship in 1910 and 1913. He performed the hat-trick against Hertfordshire at Cheshunt in 1920, earning a first-innings analysis of seven wickets for 27 runs. On the ground staff at Lord's he played for M.C.C. and in 1913 enjoyed the distinction of bowling F. E. Woolley, the great Kent and England left-hand batsman, with his first delivery in first-class cricket. Waston was also a useful hard-hitting batsman. He was at one time coach at the R.N.C. Dartmouth, Bishop's Stortford College and Perse School and later served as head porter at Trinity College, Cambridge.
