Profile

A miner by profession, he survived the Markham Colliery disaster that claimed 70 lives in 1938, making his debut for Derbyshire on the resumption in 1946. He went on to play 66 times, with his best performance coming when he took 6 for 37 against Northamptonshire in 1947. In 1950 he was appointed coach at Repton, where he stayed for 30 years, and he also helped on the MCC's famous Easter coaching courses. Even though he retired in 1980 he continued to coach junior sides at the school for another decade. He spent a time on Derbyshire's committee and continued to be a regular spectator until ill health limited his visits.
