TEAMS

A top wicketkeeper in his prime, Bruce French spent two tours as understudy to Paul Downton before being given his chance in 1986. That he kept Jack Russell out of the England team for almost two years on wicketkeeping merit alone is a tribute to his glove work, though his batting never developed as it could have done. He maintained his links with the game as a wicketkeeping coach with England as well as pursuing his passion of mountaineering.
