Clarence Passailaigue was a close childhood friend of George Headley, who scored 183 on his first-class debut for Jamaica against MCC in 1929-30. His second match was his Test debut, also at Sabina Park, in the final Test where he made 44 and 2 not out, and he was unfortunate not to be picked for the tour of Australia in 1930-31. Indeed, it was rather odd that he never played for West Indies again. The remainder of his first-class career was spasmodic, with ten matches in the next eight years, all in either Jamaica or Trinidad. In 1931-32, he hammered a career-best 261 not out against Lord Tennyson's tourists, adding a world-record 487 for the sixth wicket with Headley.
