Profile

CRAWFORD, MR. VIVIAN FRANK SHERGOLD, died on August 21, at the age of forty-three. He was born on April 11, 1879. Coming out for Surrey in 1898 he took part in twelve matches, his best scores being 73 against Gloucestershire and 83 against Oxford University-both at the 0val. His first hundred for Surrey was 129 against Somerset at the Oval in 1899. In June that year he put his knee out at Chesterfield and could play no more for Surrey during the season. He was appointed secretary to Leicestershire in 1903 and having a birth qualification for the county was able to step into the eleven at once. At the Oval in 1909 he hit up a score of 172 against Surrey, and in the following season he finished with county cricket. For some years before the war he was living in Ceylon. He died, after two or three days' illness, from pneumonia, the war having left him with a much-impaired constitution.
