Profile

George Hart may well, in the course of a fourteen-year career for Middlesex have been twelfth man more often than any other cricketer. For good measure, he had also acted as twelfth man for England in three Tests at Lord's, a position for which his faultless fielding admirably qualified him. Traditionally Middlesex had relied on a small staff of professionals supported by an apparently endless supply of talented amateurs, few of whom could play regularly. If in the 1920s and 1930s there was little sign of this supply drying up, the amount of time that the amateurs could give decreased rapidly. Hence the value of a professional such as Hart, who was always available to fill a vacancy, could field anywhere, and might make a few valuable runs at a crisis. Moreover, he was a good cutter and off-driver and was constantly raising hopes of developing into something better; hopes that were never fully realised.
