Profile

A lower middle-order batsman and right-arm seamer, Jim Standen had already made a mark in football in goal for Arsenal when he joined Worcestershire in 1959 (he had played in the Minor Counties Championship for Hertfordshire). He played regularly once his footballing commitments scaled down with a move to Luton Town, and in 1962 took 78 wickets for the county, his best return. In 1962 his football career was kick-started with a move to West Ham and again his availability for cricket suffered.
