Profile

SINFIELD, REGINALD ALBERT, was born on December 24, 1900, and died on March 17, 1988. At the time of his death he was England's oldest surviving Test cricketer, a distinction which then fell to R. E. S. Wyatt. His single appearance for England at Trent Bridge in the First Test of 1938 was the climax to a career which extended from 1921 to 1939 and was a fitting reward for years of loyal service to Gloucestershire. Sinfield was the epitome of the old type of English professional cricketer. In him were combined all those qualities which contributed so much to the development of the game at a time when its leadership was very much under the control of the amateur.
