TEAMS

George Wood was a wicketkeeper of the old school who stood up to the stumps regardless of the bowler's pace, and his career spanned the Great War (he won Blues at Cambridge both before and after the war). In 1921 he was a member of Archie MacLaren's amateur side which famously defeated Warwick Armstrong's Australians. Wood turned down an invitation to tour Australia in 1920-21, but did make three Test appearances against South Africa in 1924. He was a good enough batsman to open, and on occasion dispensed with the pads to bowl medium-pace. He also gained Blues for hockey and rugby.
