Wisden obituary
Charles Percy McGahey, the famous Essex batsman, died in Whipps Cross Hospital on January 10. His death was the result of an accident on Christmas Day when, slipping on a greasy pavement, he fell and damaged a finger. Septic poisoning ensued and proved fatal. Charles McGahey first appeared for Essex in 1893 when the county was second-class and not until 1921 did he retire. He was assistant secretary of the club for several years and captained the County eleven from 1907 to 1910, while from 1930 onwards he acted as official scorer for Essex.
