Profile

John Nevinson was in the Eton XI in 1928 and 1929. With a good action, he was distinctly fast for a schoolboy and in 1929 headed the averages with 44 wickets at 13.47. At Lord's he took 6 for 86 in the first innings. Going up to Oxford, he had a good trial for the University in 1930 and in his first match took 4 for 15 against Glamorgan; but after that he did nothing and later was never a serious contender for a Blue. In 1933 he played six matches for Middlesex, but, as his four wickets cost 92.25 runs each, he was not persevered with.
