Profile

Wisden obituary
The Rev Clement Eustace Macro Wilson, Prebendary of Bishopshull in Lichfield Cathedral, who died on February 8, aged 68, at Colverhall, Shropshire, of which he was Vicar, stood out supreme in the Uppingham XI some fifty years ago. After a moderate start in 1891, he profited so much from the supervision of H. H. Stephenson, most famous of coaches, that in 1893 he scored 722 runs, including 117, 145 and 183 not out consecutively. In the last effort against Repton he carried his bat through the innings. He averaged 90.25 that season and 44.2 when captain. He also headed the bowling averages in 1893. Gaining his Cambridge Blue as a freshman, he finished four years in the eleven as captain. He progressed in excellence, 35, 80, 77 and 115 being his best efforts in the four successive matches against Oxford at Lord's. It is interesting to recall that E. Rockley Wilson scored a hundred (118) in the 1901 University match, the only instance of two brothers accomplishing this for Cambridge, while H. K. Foster, with 121 in 1895, and R. E. Foster, 171 in 1900, set up a similar record for Oxford--all four innings being played in the course of seven years. From 1896 to 1899 Clem Wilson played a little for Yorkshire, averaging 25.60 for ten completed innings, his best score being 91 not out against Kent at Canterbury in 1897, the highest innings in the match. The calls of Church prevented him continuing first-class cricket. He toured South Africa with a team captained by Lord Hawke in the winter of 1898. Besides his ability as a batsman, Clem Wilson bowled medium pace and possessed the exceptional craft of being able to use with effect either arm. In 1895 at the Oval Abel and Holland mastered the Cambridge attack, and Wilson ended a stand of 306 for the third wicket by holding a return catch when bowling left-hand.
