I’ve been reorganising the corner cabinets in the bars, one with Hampshire Cricket books, one with a tribute to Phil Hughes and one about Wynyard including a significant bat, ball and telegram.

What a mind-bogglingly accomplished athlete… (if wikipedia is correct).
– Captained Hampshire and MCC, and played in 3 Tests.
– Scored in 1881 F.A. Cup Final
– European tobogganing champion 1894 (and while in the vicinity he rescued a peasant from drowning)
– Played hockey for Hampshire

The Freddie Flintoff of his time!

Also he was a somewhat talented Rugby Union player. According to Wikipedia : At St Edward’s School, Oxford, he also took up rugby union football, playing in that school’s XV. He was described as
“a glorious three-quarter, fast and strong, and could turn on a sixpence when in full cry. Had he not gone into the army, he would have reached the top in the rugger world.”[
