George Malcolm Emmett, died on December 18, aged 61. Born in India, he started his career on the groundstaff at Lord's and then, after several successful seasons for Devon, began to qualify for Gloucestershire in 1936. The soundness of his method at once made it clear that he had great possibilities, but it was not until 1947 that he really fulfilled expectations. From then until 1959 he was one of the mainstays of the side, which he captained from 1955 to 1958. In all he made for Gloucestershire 22,806 runs with an average of 31 and scored 34 hundreds. A fine player on a turning wicket, he could also hit the ball astonishingly hard for so small a man and was always prepared to adapt his game to the needs of the side. In 1954 against Somerset at Taunton he scored the fastest century of the season, reaching his hundred in 84 minutes. Highly though he was rated for years, he played only once for England, against Australia at Old Trafford in 1948, when Lindwall's pace was too much for him. After his retirement from the Gloucestershire side he served the county further as groundsman and coach.
