Profile

Punch Philipson, died in London after a long illness, on December 4, in his 70th year. Born on June 8, 1866, at Tynemouth, he went to Eton and gaining a place in the eleven as a batsman in 1883, he subsequently kept wicket besides going in first. In his third year he scored 141 against Winchester; 53 and 27 against Harrow. Illness prevented Philipson from playing cricket in 1886, but next year he got his blue at Oxford, and in 1889 he captained the eleven instead of W. W. Rashleigh, who was studying for the Church. He played his highest innings of 150 in 1887 for Oxford against Middlesex, taking part in a seventh wicket stand of 340 with K. J. Key, who scored 281.
