TEAMS

The boyish-looking Roy Swetman was a compact and efficient wicketkeeper and a useful lower middle-order batsman whose career included spells at three counties, but mainly with Surrey. He made his first-class debut while in National Service, and his arrival at The Oval prompted Arthur McIntyre to retire early. He was picked for two tours - Australia and New Zealand in 1958-59 and the Caribbean the following winter. He kept competently in 11 Tests on those two trips and against India in the intervening summer, but it was a period when England were blessed with an abundance of good wicketkeepers and his chances were limited. He retired, aged 28, at the end of 196, but returned to play two seasons with Nottinghamshire in 1966 and 1967. He again came out of retirement in 1972 for three summers with Gloucestershire.
