Profile

Wisden Obituary
Percy Mills, the medium-paced bowler who was one of the mainstays of the Gloucestershire team from 1902 to 1929, died at his home at Abingdon, Berkshire, on December 8 at the age of 67. A slight figure, he was precise and neat. His best performance occurred at Bristol in 1928 when, against Somerset, he took five wickets without conceding a run. This was only the fourth time that the feat had been achieved and no one has done it since that day. After his retirement when 45, he went to Radley College as coach, but he returned to first-class cricket in 1947 as an umpire. Last summer Mills helped in the coaching at the County Ground, Bristol, where he paid particular attention to the juniors. During his career he took 823 wickets for Gloucestershire at an average cost of 25.20.
