Percy Arnold Goodman, died at Barbados on April 25, aged 60. With his death there came to an end a cricket quartette of Goodmans. Sir Gerald Aubrey captained the Pickwick Club; Evan was the fastest scorer in Barbados; Clifford the best bowler and Percy the best all-rounder. Percy Goodman played against all the English touring teams from 1895 to 1911 and he came to England with the West Indies sides of 1900 and 1906. He hit a century against Lord Brackley's team in 1905; in 1900 he made 104 not out against Derbyshire and in 1906 he scored 102 not out against Yorkshire and 107 against Northamptonshire. He had a good defence and hit the loose ball very hard.
