WHITE, ALLAN FREDERICK TINSDALE, who died on March 16,1993, at the age of 77, captained Worcestershire for three seasons after the war. After playing for Uppingham and the successful Cambridge side of 1936 (he missed a Blue the following year), he played nine games for his native Warwickshire before joining Worcestershire in 1939. He had no immediate success but he returned after the war and emerged as a competent enough batsman to pass 1,000 runs, though he never scored a first-class century. He was made captain in 1947 and quickly established himself as a popular and enterprising leader. However, his mushroom growing business made increasing demands. He retired after 1949, when he shared the captaincy with Bob Wyatt, and Worcestershire came close to their first-ever Championship.
