TEAMS

Ron Giles played for Nottinghamshire either side of the war, but his most success in a career which spanned 23 season came in the early 1950s when he formed part of a solid opening pair with Reg Simpson. After making his debut in 1937, he held down a place in the side in 1939 and continued intermittently from 1946, but without any marked success.

Early in the 1951 summer Giles was pushed up the order to open with Simpson as a replacement for the ageing Walter Keeton was sought, and despite making a duck in his first outing, in his second game with Simpson he made his maiden first-class hundred as the pair added 284 for the first wicket against Oxford University. He passed 1000 runs three times and made nine hundreds.
