Profile

ROUGHT-ROUGHT, DESMOND CHARLES, who died on January 7 following a motor-car crash in which his wife was killed outright, aged 57, was one of three brothers - the others were RC and BW - who rendered fine allround service to Norfolk in the 1930's. Playing from 1931 to 1938, Desmond enjoyed six years of Minor Counties' cricketing experience before gaining his Blue at Cambridge in 1937. His best season for the county as a hard-hitting batsman was that of 1934, when he made 381 runs, average 34.63, and as a fast-medium bowler he headed the averages in the following season with 42 wickets for 14.16 runs each.
