Peter Clarke, who died in Dublin in December, aged about 33, came to the front suddenly in May, 1912, when he was chosen for his googly bowling for the Trial match at the Oval between England and The Rest. In his few representative games in Ireland he had done little against All India, Hampshire, and Cambridge University, and at The Oval his solitary wicket cost 68 runs. For Woodbrooke he took many wickets, but for Middlesex (for which county he had a birth qualification) he was not very successful. For three seasons he was on the ground staff at Lord's.
