Profile

Arthur Webb, who died on December 3, 1952, aged 84, was a right-handed batsman relying on powerful forearms who was a regular member of the Hampshire team for ten years round the turn of the century. His finest innings came in his benefit match, against Surrey, in 1904 when he scored an unbeaten 162 in 270 minutes. Unfortunately, the match was badly affected by rain and Webb's share of the takings was only £150. He later moved to Wales, where he was professional and groundsman at Briton Ferry Steelworks and then coach at Christ College, Brecon.
