Profile

Henry Enthoven, who died at his home in London on June 29, aged 72, had a distinguished career for Harrow, Cambridge, Middlesex and the Gentlemen. After four years in the Harrow XI in which he twice played a big part in bowling out Eton, he got his blue as a Freshman in 1923 and in 1924 caused some surprise by making 104 at Lord's, a performance far in advance of anything he had done before. When on the other hand he followed this next year with 129, thus becoming the second player to make a hundred twice in the University match, there was no surprise. That year he topped the Cambridge batting with 779 runs at an average of 51.93, was second in the bowling with 50 wickets at 22.14 and was one of four Cambridge players picked for the Gentlemen at Lord's.
