Profile

Robert Henderson will be remembered for the excellent service he rendered to Middlesex as a bowler during several seasons in the "70"s. He was one of the few cricketers who, despite the enormous disadvantage of having to play in glasses, have met with success in first-class matches. He was a right-handed bowler, slow to medium pace, and, without ever being great, was decidedly above the average among amateurs. Mr. Henderson was educated at Harrow, and was considered very unfortunate in just missing a place in the XI. He was only 44.
