Profile

Francis Henley, who died on June 26, aged 79, was in the Forest School XI before going to Oxford, for whom he played against Cambridge in 1905. A fast bowler, he took 1 for 40 and 3 for 39 and scored 1 and 11. He experienced an extraordinary piece of good fortune during the second innings, when a ball touched his leg stump without removing a bail. In 1905, too, he was a member of the M.C.C. team who, under the captaincy of E. W. Mann, visited the U.S.A., where he scored 207 runs, average 20.70, and headed the bowling figures with 42 wickets for 8.40 runs each. He took part in three matches with Middlesex in 1908 and also appeared for Suffolk.
