Profile

The Great War robbed Abe Waddington of his early years, but he took 100 wickets in his first season (1919) at the age of 26, a feat he repeated in five of the following eight summers. His bowling - he was a left-arm seamer who could swing and seam the ball - was instrumental in Yorkshire's five Championship titles in that time. He toured Australia under Johnny Douglas in 1920-21, achieving little in his two Tests but topping the first-class averages. He was a sound close fielder and a capable tailender - his only first-class hundred (114 against Worcestershire) came in his final season. Away from cricket, Waddington was a good allround sportsman, and he played in goal for Bradford City and Halifax Town.
