TEAMS

George Hearne, the veteran cricketer, who passed away on Friday, December 9, at the age of 75, will be remembered far less for what he did in the field himself than for the fact that he had three sons in the Kent eleven - George, Frank, and Alec. A younger brother of the famous Tom Hearne, who died four years ago, he was associated with Middlesex in the earliest days of the club, playing in several matches on the old Cattle Market ground, Islington - long since built over. When the Private Banks ground at Catford Bridge was opened, nearly thirty years ago, he received the appointment of custodian, and at Catford he lived for the rest of his life, resigning his post quite recently on account of advancing age. Like his sons and his brother Tom he was held in high regard by all who had any dealings with him either on or off the cricket field.
