Profile

The Hon John Coventry was in the Eton XI in 1920 and 1921, in the latter year scoring 23 runs and taking with slow left-arm bowling seven Harrow wickets for 88 runs. Though he did not get a Blue at Oxford, he played for Worcestershire from 1925 to 1935. He took over the county captaincy midway through the 1929 season, when Major M. F. S. Jewell resigned through ill health, and continued in 1930. His highest innings was 75 against Leicestershire at Kidderminster in 1929. A partner in Tattersalls, the race-horse auctioneers, Coventry was Mayor of Worcester in 1929 and 1930. He served with the Grenadier Guards during the Second World War.
