Profile

John Thomson Bell, who has died at Guiseley, near Leeds at the age of 76, played for Yorkshire in 1921 and 1923, having few opportunities to distinguish himself, although in the match against Essex at Leyton, he and Norman Kilner put on 117 for the first wicket to set up a memorable victory. Like so many other Yorkshiremen, Bell was to find success with another county - Glamorgan, for whom he played as an opening batsman until and including 1931. He headed the county's batting in 1926 with 1471 runs at 38.71, with four centuries, the highest 225 against Worcestershire at Dudley, where he and Trevor Arnott added 177 in 70 minutes.
