Allrounder Vince Broderick was a middle-order batsman and left-arm spinner who was a stalwart for Northamptonshire in the post-war years and one of a dwindling number of those who had played first-class cricket before the war, making his debut in August 1939 as many regulars left to join the forces. When cricket resumed he made one appearance in 1946 but from then to his retirement at the end of 1957 was an ever present.
His best season came in 1948 when he achieved the double of 1000 runs and 100 wickets - his form earned him an outing for the Rest in the Test Trial but the match was blighted by rain; a second trial match in 1949 was equally frustrating.
His best bowling - 9 for 35 against Sussex at Horsham - as well as the first two of his five hundreds came in 1948, and after that he was less effective with the ball although did enjoy two good seasons near the end of his career. With the bat his highest score was 190 not out against Scotland in 1953, sharing a then-record opening stand of 361 with Norman 'Buddy' Oldfield.
After his retirement he became cricket professional at Winchester College where he remained for 28 years as well as continuing to captain Northamptonshire's 2nd XI until 1959.
