Profile

WIGNALL, ERIC WILLIAM EDWARD, who died at Oxhey, Hertfordshire, on January 2, 1991, aged 58, played in three matches for Gloucestershire in 1952 and 1953. A right-handed batsman and leg-break bowler, he had previously been on the groundstaff at Lord's. When Gloucestershire met the Combined Services at Bristol in 1953, after an interesting struggle the Services were set 339 to win. They were going well and looking like winners until Wignall chipped in with two vital wickets: he caught and bowled the redoubtable A. C. Shirreff for 77 and dismissed J. E. Manners when he was 34. In the end, the Services fell 33 runs short of their target. Wignall had made 24 runs, average 8.00, and taken two wickets at 31.50 apiece when injury forced him to give up any further ideas of first-class cricket.
