Don Denton played seven times for Northamptonshire either side of World War One as a middle-order batsman. That in itself is unremarkable, but during the war he lost part of his leg and in his three appearances in 1919 and 1920 he had to bat using one of his brothers as a runner, while he fielded exclusively at point. The Lancashire captain, approached for special permission, wrote: "If any fellow has been to the war and has had his leg off and wants to play, he is good enough for me and can have 20 runners." One wonders what he might have achieved if not so disabled. In his last innings he made 37 and, according to The Times, "played fine cricket".
