Profile

Reginald Allen Hollingdale, who died recently in hospital at Penicuik, near Edinburgh, after a short illness, was born at Burgess Hill, near Brighton, in 1906. He captained his school to victory in the East Sussex League in 1920 and was taken on to the Sussex staff at 16. Meanwhile he played for Haywards Heath and made his debut for Sussex in 1925, gaining his county cap in 1927. Once he took the wickets of Sutcliffe and Holmes for only 35 runs, but, being of a similar pace to Maurice Tate but with less speed off the pitch, he could not hold his place in the side, but he did make 1,034 runs and took 81 wickets.
