TEAMS

Mordecai Sherwin was a rolly-polly figure - weighing in at more than 17 stone - but despite his size was an agile, competent and strong wicketkeeper who stood up to the fastest bowling. He represented Nottinghamshire as a professional for 14 seasons, was on the Lord's staff for almost 25, and in the mid 1880s was widely acknowledged as the best professional keeper in the land. He toured Australia in 1886-87, making two Test appearances, and also played once at home, against Australia in 1888. After retiring he became an umpire, standing for five seasons (1896-1901) and once in a Test (at Headingley in 1899). He then became a landlord in Nottingham. Sherwin also kept goal for Notts County.
