Profile

Tom Sidwell kept wicket for Leicestershire between 1913 and 1933, his total of 551 catches and 127 stumpings constituted a record for the county. He was on the books between 1914 and 1931, when he officially retired, and in that time only missed six matches. He was persuaded to make a comeback in 1933 when Paddy Corrall sustained a fractured skull when hit by a flailing bat and remained for the rest of the summer.
