Profile

Wisden obituary
Colonel Leonard George Irvine, late RAMC, who died suddenly at Canterbury on April 27, aged 67, coming up to Cambridge from Taunton School, took eleven wickets in the Freshman's match in 1926 and finished the season with the notable record of 52 wickets at 1959 for the University. Next year on slow pitches he was less successful and in 1928 lost his place. A slow leg-spinner, he made one appearance for Kent in 1927 when neither Freeman nor Marriott was available.
