DIMENT, ROBERT ANTHONY, died on June 18, 2005, aged 78. Tony Diment was an amateur batsman who played one match for Gloucestershire in 1952, and regularly for Leicestershire in the late 1950s, while working as the club's assistant secretary. He was appointed to succeed Charles Palmer as secretary at the end of 1957 but resigned after two years to work in the leather industry. His first-class record was indifferent, but he had a glorious moment for Leicestershire Second XI in 1959 in the Minor Counties competition. He broke loose against the Shropshire attack at Loughborough and bludgeoned an unbeaten double-century, a great rarity at the time as matches were played over two days.
