Profile

Reginald Herbert Spooner, whose name is linked with the greatest batsmen of Edwardian England, died in a nursing home at Lincoln on October 2, after a few weeks' illness, at the age of 80. One of the most beautiful stroke-makers known to the game, he adorned the cricketing scene as a player for Lancashire and England in an age of giants, when quality, style and skill were wedded as perhaps at no other time.
