In the years immediately following the First World War the fortunes of Northamptonshire suffered through lack of a captain who could devote his full time to the game. In 1925, therefore, the committee made a bold move in appointing as captain J. M. Fitzroy, a recently retired naval officer qualified by birth and residence for the county but with no previous experience of first-class cricket. The move proved fully justified and with nine victories in the County Championship that year the club had its most successful season since the war.
