Bob Felton died after a long illness on October 5, 1982, aged 72. He made many runs for St Paul's, where he was four years in the Eleven, and, after proving himself a valuable member of the Middlesex Second Eleven, played a number of times for the county between 1935 and 1948, scoring in all 496 runs with an average of 27.56. He played one outstanding innings of 171 against Cambridge at Fenner's in 1937, reaching his hundred in 110 minutes and putting on 138 with Hulme for the fifth wicket in just over an hour. Altogether he batted for 160 minutes. He had a beautiful pair of wrists and was a particularly good cutter. For years he was a heavy scorer in club cricket around London.
