Profile

Vernon Royle was a capable middle-order batsman who was renowned for his excellent fielding in the covers. Fast over the ground, ambidextrous, and possessing a devastatingly accurate throw, he appeared for Lancashire before obtaining his Blue at Oxford. He toured Australia with Lord Harris's side - where again his fielding won considerable praise - but effectively retired from first-class cricket in 1879 when he started teaching. He was subsequently ordained.
