Profile

Alan Hansford was an opening seam bowler for Sussex between 1989 and 1992, although he played for the 2nd XI as early as 1987. He took 4 for 46 and 4 for 29 on his first-class debut against Cambridge University, and in his second Championship match at the end of that summer took a career-best 5 for 79 against Hampshire at Hove. He finished the season with 20 wickets at 24.25 but was unable to recapture that form in subsequent years. In 1989 Hansford was a member of the Combined Universities side, captained by Mike Atherton, which reached the quarter-finals of the Benson & Hedges Cup. Years later Atherton wrote that Hansford was the only gay cricketer he had come across, in response to a letter from Hansford in which he wrote that "there can't be too many gay accountants who dismissed you twice in a first class match".
