Jack Santall, whose death last May at Bournemouth has only recently come to
notice, played eight matches for Worcestershire in 1930. A strongly built and aggressive middle-order right-hand batsman and useful seam bowler, he made little impact, averaging less than 10 for 117 runs and taking two expensive wickets, and subsequently abandoned cricket to become a professional ice-skater and instructor.
Jack Santall's father Sydney was a professional bowler who took 1,207 wickets for
Warwickshire between 1894 and 1914 and was also the county historian and coach, while his elder brother Reg scored 17,518 runs for Warwickshire between 1919 and 1939. Born in Birmingham on December 3, 1907, Jack Santall was 78 years old at his death.
