Brindle, Reginald Gordon, who died in Newton-le-Willows on March 16, 1998, aged 72, spent two summers on the Warwickshire staff from 1948 and played against Combined Services in 1949. A right-handed batsman from Warrington, he compiled attractive innings of 42 and 32 to confirm his potential, but Warwickshire's Championship aspirations, fulfilled in 1950, were being built around a cadre of experienced players. Brindle was not given another chance and returned north to score heavily in Merseyside club cricket.
