Profile

HULME, JOSEPH HAROLD ANTHONY, who died at Winchmore Hill, North London on September 26, 1991, aged 87, was a regular professional member of the Middlesex side from 1929 to 1939. Throughout the 1920s, and ever since their entry into the Championship, Middlesex had looked to amateurs for their runs, and then all at once what had been an unbroken succession was reduced to a trickle. Their chief professional stalwarts - Hearne, Harry Lee, Durston and (to a lesser extent) Hendren - were ageing, and it was no surprise to find them bumping along in the lower reaches of the Championship early in the 1930s. With Hendren, Hulme played an important part in bridging the gap until the arrival of Edrich, Compton, Robertson and Brown. A right-handed middle-order batsman with aggressive instincts, he was also a brilliant deep field and a useful medium-fast bowler.
