Michael Frederick's career was one of brief opportunity. An opening batsman, he played once for Barbados in 1944-45 as a 17 year old, twice as an amateur for Derbyshire in 1949, and then twice for Jamaica - both against the touring MCC- in 1953-54. He made fifties in both matches, and was drafted into the side for the first Test where he scored 0 and 30. That was his sixth and last first-class appearance.
