Seccull, Mr. Arthur William, a member of the first South African team that visited England in 1894, died at Johannesburg on July 20, aged 76. During that tour Seccull scored 355 runs, average 15.10, his highest innings being 63 against Glamorgan. He took only four wickets at a cost of 42.30 each in first-class matches, but in South Africa he often bowled well and in March 1896 dismissed two batsmen for 37 runs in the third representative match against Lord Hawke's touring side at Capetown. He played inter-provincial cricket regularly from 1887 to 1899, his highest score being 64 for Transvaal against Western Province.
