John Asquith was a wicketkeeper with few pretensions as a batsman, and his opportunities in 1953 and 1955 came about when Cambridge's first-choice keepers were absent and injured. He kept against the Australians in 1953 and the Pakistanis in the following summer.
Asquith had more success on the rugby field where he won a Blue in 1953 and then he went on the play for Moseley and the Midlands. A teacher by profession, in 1964 he became the first headmaster of Cawston School in Norfolk, a position he held for 22 years.
