Profile

William Chatterton, one of the greatest of Derbyshire cricketers, died of consumption at Flowery Field, Hyde, on March 19th, in his 50th year. For many years he occupied a high position among professional batsmen, and it was due largely to him that his county was reinstated among the first-class sides in 1894. Although he had many strokes, his batting was essentially watchful and steady. That his careful methods paid is proved by the fact that for Derbyshire alone his scored 11,619 runs with an average of 25.15. In addition, he took 199 wickets for the county at a cost of just under 23 runs each. For the M.C.C. also his all-round cricket was often most valuable, and for Mr. W. W.
