Don Denton played seven times for Northamptonshire either side of World War One as a middle-order batsman. That in itself is unremarkable, but during the war he lost part of his leg and in his three appearances in 1919 and 1920 he had to bat using one of his brothers as a runner, while he fielded exclusively at point.
