Profile

Charles Percy Davis was a Northamptonshire cricketer from the peak of his crimson cap - always the first item of clothing he donned in the dressing-room - to the sprigs of his locally made boots. Born in Brackley, in the deep south of the county, he scored 6,363 runs at an average of 22.64 in 169 first-team appearances between 1935 and 1952. His 10 centuries included a career-best 237 against Somerset at Northampton in 1947.
