Profile

ADAMS, GEOFFREY COKER ARDING, MBE, who died on February 10, 1998, aged 88 was a Cambridge rugby Blue but failed to make the cricket team. He did, however, play 18 matches for Hampshire in his vacations and captained them in one match against Essex in 1930. He had modest success as both middle-order batsman and change bowler. After the war, he emigrated to Australia and built up a newspaper group in rural Victoria.
