Profile

Scores and Biographies described Augustus Frank Justice Ford as a capital and effective batsman, a middle paced round-armed bowler with a curious preliminary hop, and in the field good, though taking no particular place. At Repton, he was in the XI in 1874-5-6-7, being captain in the last two years. Going up to Cambridge, he got his Blue as a freshman in 1878 and played the next three seasons. His best performance in the' Varsity Match was in 1881 when he scored 34 and 24 and took two wickets. In that season he made his highest score in first-class cricket - 102 v. Surrey at the Oval. For Middlesex, whom he assisted from 1879 to 1882, he showed himself a first-rate slip fieldsman and caught seven men in a match against Gloucestershire at Lord's in 1882. His best bowling feat in first-class matches was accomplished in 1880 when at the Oval he took 13 Surrey wickets for 82.
