Hartley Alleyne was a much-travelled fast bowler who was signed by Worcestershire after a handful of appearances in the West Indies and Minor Counties cricket and made an immediate impact, taking 64 first-class wickets at 25.06 in his first season as well as turning in some good one-day performances. He returned in 1981, taking a career-best 8 for 43 against Middlesex and winning his county cap but he failed to maintain the high standards of his first year and he was not retained after 1982. Alleyne continued playing in Barbados and returning to England and league and Minor County cricket in the summer. In 1983-84 he took part in the rebel West Indies tour of South Africa for which he received a life ban from playing in the Caribbean. In 1984-85 he returned to South Africa to play for Natal, remaining with them for the rest of his career. In 1988 he signed for Kent and stayed for two summers, although his appearances were limited. He continued to play league cricket before turning to coaching with St Edmunds school in Canterbury. However, in 2007 he was faced with the threat of deportation after failing to secure a work permit, although early in 2008 he was granted a three-year stay in the UK.
