Profile

Yorkshire-born Roy Booth was the last wicketkeeper to take 100 dismissals in a season. was born in Yorkshire, achieving the feat twice for Worcestershire - in 1960 and 1964, their first championship season - and is one of only seven keepers ever to manage it. In all Booth made 1125 first-class dismissals between 1951 and 1970, but never came close to Test selection. A batting average of 18.91 was largely responsible for that.
