Profile

Horace Edgar "Tom" Dollery, died in hospital in Birmingham on January 20, 1987, aged 72. Few players have done more for Warwickshire cricket. For twenty years he was one of the mainstays of their batting, usually top or second in the averages: he never had a bad season and seldom a bad patch. He was a tireless fieldsman and in the latter part of his career became the county's first official professional captain. When, under him, Warwickshire won the Championship for the first time in 40 years, Wisden described him as the most skilful of all the county captains.
