Profile

CHARLES FREDERICK DAFT, elder brother of the late Richard Daft, died at Nottingham on March 10, aged 84. He was born at Nottingham on June 8, 1830, and was described in Scores and Biographies as: "A good and steady batsman...in the field is generally mid-wicket on and long-stop". His career in County cricket was short, extending only from 1862 to 1865. One of his best innings was his 46 v. Kent, at Trent Bridge, in 1864, slowly but well played for. As a cricketer he was somewhat late in coming to the front, and he had almost completed his thirty-second year when he appeared at Lord's for the Colts against M.C.C. In that match he scored 26 and 13 and took five wickets for 34, an all-round feat for which he was called up to the pavilion and presented with a prize bat. For several years he was secretary of the Nottingham Commercial C.C., as well as one of the most useful players in the team.
