CASE, CECIL CHARLES COLES, who died on November 11, aged 74, rendered good service to Somerset as an amateur batsman between 1925 and 1935. Steady but sure, he scored in all 8,574 runs, average 22.04, and held 44 catches. Twice he exceeded 1,000 runs in a season in Championship matches, his best year being that of 1933, when his aggregate reached 1,027. In 1927 at Taunton, when he made 122 against Gloucestershire, he and J. C. White added 235 together, establishing a fifth-wicket record for the county which still holds good. The highest of Case's nine centuries was 155 against Surrey at The Oval in 1931.
