Profile

Rhodesian born, and educated in South African, Neal Radford was a brisk bowler who moved to England to expand opportunities limited by the international boycott of the apartheid regime. He initially played in the Lancashire Leagues, but soon came to the attention of Lancashire who signed him in 1980, while he continued to winter with Transvaal.
