Reggie Ford played in 57 matches for Gloucestershire between 1929 and 1936. At the outset of his career he was expected to develop into a sound bat and, as a medium-pace right-armer, was often given the new ball. But as his final record for the county was 496 runs, with an average of 10.55 and a highest score of 37 not out, and as his ten wickets cost him 49.30 runs each, he can hardly be said to have fulfilled his promise.
