Profile

Ernest Tyldesley, the former Lancashire and England batsman and a member of the well-known Lancashire cricketing family, died at his home at Rhos-on-Sea, North Wales, on May 5, at the age of 73. Though never one of the giants of the game and rarely aspiring to brilliance of style, he established himself - especially during the 1920s-as one of the pillars of Lancashire cricket, so that his final total of runs and centuries in first-class cricket has remained unsurpassed by any Lancashire player.
