Profile

William Harrison, who died on September 7, aged 78, ended a brief first-class career on a glorious note when, in his last innings, he hit 156 for Middlesex against Gloucestershire at Gloucester, where he and E. S. Litteljohn added 131 for the third wicket. In the XI at Rugby in 1902 and 1903, he hit 55 in the match with Marlborough at Lord's in the first year and 76 in the next, when he headed the school averages. He gained a Blue at Cambridge in 1907, but achieved little on the big occasion. He took part in seven matches for Kent in 1904 and 1905 and from 1906 to 1911 he played for Middlesex. In 1906-07 he toured New Zealand with the M.C.C. team.
