Profile

Arthur Booth, born Featherstone, November 3, 1902, died in hospital at Roch- dale, August 17, 1974. He had lived for many years at Littleborough on the Yorkshire-Lancashire border beyond Halifax and had shared a cricket interest between the two counties as a professional in the leagues and later as a coach at the Yorkshire nets and a committee man with Lancashire. A left-arm slow bowler of considerable ability, he vied with Hedley Verity and Horace Fisher for a place in the Yorkshire side when the great Wilfred Rhodes finished in 1930. He missed out and not until 1946, at 43, when first-class cricket started again after the war, did he realise his life-time ambition to be Yorkshire's unchallenged No. 1 spinner.
