Profile

David Hunter, born at Scarborough on February 23, 1860, died suddenly at his native place on January 11, aged 66. In 1888 he succeeded his brother Joseph as the Yorkshire wicketkeeper and he retained the position until 1909, taking in all matches for the county during that period 1,272 wickets--920 caught and 352 stumped. He was quiet, sure and neat in his methods and his hands never sustained any deformity or serious injury, notwithstanding the great amount of work he got through. In Hall's benefit match -- against Surrey at Sheffield in 1891 - he caught five men and stumped one in an innings; in a game with the same county at Bradford seven years later he claimed eight of the twenty wickets, catching two and stumping six; while in his last season, 1909, he made six catches in the course of an innings against Surrey at Leeds. Although he appeared several times for the Players, he was never chosen for a Test-match or a tour abroad. Without ever being a great batsman, he often played a most useful innings and in county games took part in stands of 153, 148, 121, 118 and 102 for the tenth wicket. In eight different seasons he assisted Yorkshire to win the Championship, and when he was accorded his benefit match against Lancashire at Bradford in 1897 he received £1,975. He always played the game in the best possible spirit, and was deservedly popular.
