TEAMS

An attacking middle order batsman whose career was curtailed by ill-health - he was only 39 when he died - Victor Barton played in just a single Test. An Army man, he first played for Kent, producing a vital innings in the thrilling Kent victory over Nottinghamshire that produced a three-way Kent-Nottinghamshire-Lancashire tie for the Championship in 1889. But Barton failed to establish himself in the Kent side, and then like so many military men, played for Hampshire for a further 11 years. A powerful driver, he hit the ball so hard on the on-side that Wisden's obituary relates that "fieldsmen who stood at mid-on had a wholesome dread of him". Barton played his one Test in 1892, a season in which England had two simultaneous touring teams, the other side being in Australia. He was also a useful bowler, taking 141 first-class wickets (DL, 2000).
