Tom Angus died suddenly, aged 53, at Englefield Green, Surrey, on May 14, 1988, during a match, having retired ill after opening the batting for his club side. A right-arm medium-fast bowler, when he joined the groundstaff at Lord's he was one of a crop of young players to whom Middlesex were looking for success in the mid-fifties. Angus played in seven matches for the county, but did not make the grade in spite of good-looking figures; his 23 wickets cost him 15.34 runs apiece. A projected trial for Somerset never took place, and he later played for Durham County and as a much respected professional in league cricket in the north-east.
