Profile

Sidney Adams, was killed while crossing the Rhine with Allied forces on March 24, 1945, aged 40. He was a council clerk and leg-spinner who took wickets with his first two balls in first-class cricket, playing for Northamptonshire against Dublin University in 1926. Adams had scored 87 earlier in the game and finished with figures of 6 for 32. His first wicket was that of Samuel Beckett, later winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature. Adams's later career was less illustrious than his victim's, though he played nine more games for the county.
