Wisden Obituary
Wilson, George Arthur, died in Oxford on September 27, 2002, aged 86. His highest score of 55 not out in 15 pre-war appearances as an amateur for Yorkshire came against Northamptonshire at Scarborough in 1938. By the time he and Brian Sellers had added an unbroken 84 for the sixth wicket, Northants looked well and truly beaten. Altogether Wilson scored 352 runs at 17.60 and, bowling slow left-arm, took one wicket.
