Profile

COX, HENRY RAMSAY, died on December 1, 2005, aged 94. Ramsay Cox was an amateur medium-pace bowler who captained Nottinghamshire in two matches, 21 years apart - he did the job once in 1933 and again in his final county game, against Essex in 1954. A stalwart of the Nottingham Forest cricket club, he played 30 first-class matches; his 47 wickets included six for 30 from 23 overs against Derbyshire in 1951, when he was 40. Cox played for Cambridge in 1934, but did not win a Blue, claiming he had umpired himself out of one: having been pressed into the white coat for the university's match at Worcester, he gave a number of decisions in favour of a rival, who duly took his spot in the Varsity Match.
