Profile

Captain Robert Henry Fowler, who died in May, aged 99 years and 11 months, played in two matches for Ireland in 1888. He was the father of R. St. L. Fowler, who in 1910 was the hero of the Eton v. Harrow match -- known ever since as "Fowler's Match." Eton followed on 165 behind and, despite an innings of 64 by Fowler, Harrow needed only 55 to win, but Fowler, with off breaks, bowled in deadly form, taking eight wickets for 23 runs, and Eton snatched victory by nine runs.
