Richard Nicholls was in the Rugby XI in 1892 and 1893 and he played occasionally for Middlesex between 1896 and 1904. In June 1899 he and W Roche, an Australian, made 230 for the last wicket against Kent at Lord's - then the best tenth wicket stand in first-class cricket. Nicholls scored 154. Nine men were out for 55 when he was joined by Roche. Middlesex won the match by 118 runs; J. T. Hearne and A. E. Trott each took eight wickets in a remarkable game.
