Wisden obituary
Graham James Kersey, died in hospital in Western Australia on January 1, 1997, aged 25, after being injured in a car crash on Christmas Eve. Kersey was a wicket-keeper who played occasionally for Kent in 1991 and 1992 before moving to Surrey the following year. He quickly established himself at the Oval as the first-choice keeper, except on the big one-day occasions when the captain, Alec Stewart, did the job. Kersey was not an especially stylish keeper- apart from anything else, his cap regularly fell off - but he rarely dropped catches, and was a battling batsman who could irritate opposing bowlers with effective use of the sweep. Above all, he was a dedicated team man whose cheerful attitude and combative approach were an important part of Surrey's revival in 1996. Stewart described him as the most popular member of the staff - a true player's player'. The Surrey vice-captain Adam Hollioake said: "You could rely on him totally. You could get the best wicketkeeper in the world, but he couldn't possibly fill the gap."
