Profile

Though never prominent as a player Mr. Percy Thornton was all through his life a prominent and most popular figure in the cricket world. He was closely associated with Middlesex, being for some years honorary secretary to the club. He excelled far more at athletics than at cricket, being a good half-mile runner in the early days of athletics. He sat for many years as M.P. for Clapham. Cousin of Mr. C. T. Thornton.
