Jeremy Lloyds, born in Malaya and educated at Blundell's, was a late starter in county cricket after a long stint on the MCC cricket staff at Lord's. He made his debut for Somerset in 1979, by which time he was 24, and became a serviceable county allrounder. His squat-stanced left-hand batting was consistent, and he also had some success with his loopy offspin. He scored over 800 runs - but less than 1000 - every year from 1981 to 1985, then stepped up in 1986 (by which time he had, to some surprise, moved from Taunton to Gloucestershire) when he made 1295 runs. In all he passed 1000 three times before retiring in 1991 with 10,679 runs at the handy average of 31.04. There were ten centuries, two of them in the same match for Somerset at Northampton in 1982. He had his moments with the ball, taking 333 wickets in all (38.86), with a best return of 7 for 88 against Essex in 1982. He became a first-class umpire in 1998, and impressed with his calm but authoritative manner. He progressed remarkably quickly, standing in a one-day international at Bristol, his old stamping ground, in 2000. Four years later he umpired in a Test for the first time, and soon joined the ICC's international panel (one step down from its elite panel). But in April 2006, he stepped down from umpiring at the highest level, citing "family reasons".
