Profile

BRADLEY, MR. WALTER MORRIS, died at his home at Wandsworth Common on June 20, aged 69. After captaining the Alleyn's School XI and doing remarkable things for Lloyd's Register--six wickets with consecutive balls at Mitcham was one effort--he was tried for Kent and became a protégé of Lord Harris, so that he found time to play county cricket with some regularity from 1895 to 1903. No one who often watched Bill Bradley will forget his aggressive long run with both arms flung above his thrown-back head prior to the right-hand delivery from the full reach of his six feet height. Pitching at the stumps and seldom short, Bradley really personified the attack in cricket, and rarely did he fail to cause trouble among the opposition. A very hard worker, he would keep going for long spells without slackening his speed. As testimony to his worth it need only be mentioned that he played twice for England against Australia in 1899.
