Profile

Wisden obituary
Harding Issac 'Sailor' Young, who died in hospital on December 12, 1964, aged 88, played as a professional all-rounder for Essex from 1898 to 1912. His death escaped general notice at the time. Born at Leyton, he achieved prominence in minor cricket while serving in the Royal Navy and the excellence of his bowling in the nets at Leyton attracted the attention of Mr. C. E. Green. So much so, indeed, that Mr. Green bought Young out of the Service to play for Essex. From this originated the nick-name Sailor by which he was know in the cricket world.
