Profile

George Dews was a Worcestershire stalwart in the development of the team who won the County Championship in 1964. He played with most of those who brought the pennant to New Road but bowed out three years before the county's first major success. Never flashy, rarely exciting but resolutely dependable, he was one of the loyal county professionals who instilled worthwhile values into the game in the immediate post-war period.
