Wisden Obituary
Edwards, Herbert Charles, who died on January 22, 2002, aged 88, was one of several club cricketers who had a taste of first-class cricket with Worcestershire when normality returned after World War II. His debut came on a rain-softened pitch at Old Trafford where Lancashire won by an innings in a day and a half. Having taken a catch to help Roly Jenkins towards his eight Lancashire wickets, he scored ten and one and could think himself more fortunate than the man he followed in the order. Poor George Dews, also making his debut, was out first ball to Eric Price's left-arm spin in both innings. Still, Dews did go on to score 1,000 runs 11 times at New Road, whereas this was Bert Edwards's sole appearance, at the age of 32. He played club cricket for Old Hill from 1932 to 1958 and, like his father before him, served as their president.
