Profile

Henry Knollys Foster, M.B.E., who died at his home near Hereford on June 23, in his 77th year, was the eldest of seven brothers who played for Worcestershire, but he was not the most famous member of the family. That distinction belonged to his brother, R. E. Foster, who at Sydney in 1903 put together for England against Australia the memorable score of 287 which stood as the record individual score in International matches until Sir Donald Bradman beat it at Leeds in 1930. Still, H. K. Foster was a very fine batsman who--at his best--would not have been out of place in a Test match, and, furthermore, he was a truly great racquets player.
