Profile

David Fletcher joined Surrey straight after the war, making an immediate impact with four hundreds in 1947, winning a place in the Players side against the Gentlemen at Scarborough. One of his hundreds came in bizarre circumstances when he played for the North against the South at Kingston-upon-Thames after the visiting side found themselves one short.
