Profile

Harold Gilligan was the youngest of three brothers all of whom played first-class cricket. Although Frank, the eldest, played for Essex before emigrating to New Zealand, the name of Gilligan became synonymous with Sussex cricket for a decade and more following the First World War (during which Harold was awarded the AFC).
