Profile

Thomas Riley Armstrong, who died in Marfield Court Nursing Home, Leicestershire on February 6 aged 90, was a left-arm spinner and tail-end batsman whose first-class career of 58 matches for Derbyshire was spread over the period 1929-1950, but despite taking 133 wickets for the reasonable average of 24.35 he never won a regular place or his cap. His best innings figures were 7 for 36 against Gloucestershire at Buxton in 1937, a match-winning performance as deputy for England spinner Tommy Mitchell but he was soon left out of the side again.
