TEAMS

ATKINSON, BERNARD GERARD WENSLEY, who died in a London hospital on September 4, aged 65, played for Scotland, Northamptonshire and Middlesex. In the St. Paul's School XI from 1916 to 1919, he headed the batting averages in the last two years and while at Edinburgh Academy, where he taught for 37 years, hit many runs for Grange C.C. In 1934 for Middlesex against Surrey at Lord's, he hit a short-pitched ball from A. R. Gover for six with what was described as an overhead lawn tennis smash. A first-rate Rugby footballer, he appeared at centre three-quarter in a Cambridge Seniors' match but did not gain a Blue.
