TEAMS

Who was born at Fareham on November 19, 1892, was killed in action, aged 23, at Ovilliers La Boiselle, France, on July 7, 1916. He was a 2nd Lieutenant in the Royal Fusiliers.

He was a promising batsman and wicket keeper who played 16 matches for Hampshire between 1912-1914. After being in the Eleven at Twyford School, near Winchester, he went to Malvern and played for the College in 1909 and 1910 when he topped the averages with 44.33. At Cambridge he took part in the Freshmen's match in 1912 and in the Seniors' in the following year, but did not gain his blue until 1914. Against Oxford he scored only 22 and 0, which was a disappointment as he had just previously made 89 at Lord's against the MCC. For Hampshire in 1914 he played several good innings, including 54 v Kent and 69 v Lancashire, both at Bournemouth, and 76 v Somerset and 51 v Warwickshire, both at Southampton. Wisden concluded: "He would probably have developed into a cricketer of very high class."
