Profile

Edward Whalley-Tooker, died on November 23, aged 77, and his passing removed a link with the old Hambledon club, renowned as a cradle of cricket some 150 years ago. The Broad Halfpenny ground had been ploughed up for farm land, and Whalley-Tooker, a descendant of a member of the original Hambledon club, set about the task of securing the field for cricket again. It was got into condition for a match in July 1925 between Winchester College, then given the possession of the land, and Hambledon. Mr. Whalley-Tooker captained the side representing Hambledon and led his team to victory.
