Profile

Ron Wood, who died at Wakefield on May 22, 1990, aged 60, played 22 times for Yorkshire from 1952 to 1956, coming into the Championship side at a time when Wardle was at the height of his powers. Wood, whose younger brother, Barry, played for England in the 1970s, was an orthodox slow left-arm bowler, and so his opportunities were limited in what was, in effect, his apprenticeship. His first season was his most successful: he took 27 wickets at 18.92. He had match figures of four for 57 at Lord's on début, claiming Edrich and Compton as his first wickets, followed by seven for 67 at Worcester and four for 48 against Leicestershire at Sheffield. Then against Scotland at Glasgow he wrought havoc by taking six second innings wickets for 9 runs in his last five overs on a wearing pitch. His full analysis was 21.5-9-45-8. In 1953 he bowled almost exactly the same number of overs in the Championship but claimed only fifteen wickets at 30.33 apiece. He remained on the staff for another three years, doing sterling work for the Second Eleven, before playing as a professional in the leagues. When Lidget Green were Bradford League champions in 1957, Wood took 67 wickets at 8.67 each. In first-class matches his 51 wickets cost 26.39 each, and he scored 60 runs in eighteen innings.
