Profile

John Norman Abell, who died on May 26, 2004, aged 72, kept wicket in three first-class matches for Oxford University. He failed to emulate his father George by winning a Blue. But in his final match he did manage to stump both the Richardson brothers, Peter and Dick, who were playing for his father's old county, Worcestershire.
