Profile

Lieut. Col. Cyril Foley enjoyed the very special distinction of being in the Eton elevens of 1886-87 when both matches with Winchester and Harrow were won, and then helping Cambridge beat Oxford three times - 1889 to 1891. Patient and sound in defence he scored freely to the off side. Usually going in first he seldom failed. Against Harrow in 1886 he made 114 and 36. His scores next year were 37 and 8 while against Winchester he played innings of 38 and 23 and 23 and 7. For Cambridge he was equally consistent with 22, 26 and 1 not out, 12 and 41.
