Wisden obituary
Major Leslie Hewitt Gay, who played in a Test match in Australia in the winter of 1894-95 and kept goal at soccer for England, Cambridge University Corinthians and Old Brightonians, died at Sidmouth on November 1, aged 78. A cousin of Mr. K. J. Key, captain of Surrey, Gay, who was born at Brighton on March 24, 1871, kept wicket for Cambridge against Oxford in 1892 and 1893. He helped Hampshire and Somerset between 1888 and 1900, and appeared for Gentlemen v. Players at the Oval in 1892. In 1894, when a member of the Somerset team, he toured Australia with A. E. Stoddart's team but played only in the first Test. At football, Gay kept goal in the University Match in 1892 and was capped for England against Scotland in 1893, and against Scotland and Wales the following year.
