John West, born at Stepney on November 18, 1861, died in London on March 14. He was a useful medium-paced bowler, could hit hard and fielded well, and for a few seasons kept wicket. Between 1885 and 1896 he scored 1,092 runs for Middlesex with an average of 11.37 and took 76 wickets for 24.29 runs each; as wicket-keeper he caught 34 and stumped 30. His highest scores were 83 v. Gloucestershire at Lord's in 1888 and 67 against the same county in 1885. In the match with Kent at Lord's in 1886 he took six wickets for 31 runs in the first innings and three for 27 in the second. For over twenty seasons he was a member of the ground-staff at Lord's and for several years umpired in first-class matches.
