Hampshire Cricket History

Busy Day Quiz

Today I’m busy, officially launching Forever Changes and speaking to the gathering at the Bat & Ball then off to see a couple of pals play some music, so I shan’t manage much in the way of regular updates from Hove although it should be on Twitter  …

In the meantime here’s a photo of a team.You know how it is, that the cricketers you followed in those early years are indelibly etched in the memory – maybe even more so for those like me who collected autographs? If you are of my vintage, you’ll probably be able to name most/all these players. If not, perhaps not – I can get them all, but ask me to name or recognise half the players playing today and I’m lost.

Don’t miss the Hampshire man – PLUS – for a bonus point – what’s the team?

Is it Henry Horton with the Surrey team?

Comment by Ian White

Henry indeed Ian, seated far right and quite a few Surrey players but not all – it’s first-class but not county championship.

Gentlemen v Players?

Comment by Bob Elliott

Well done Bob – at least it’s one of the two … Right I’m off now, enjoy the sunny Saturday!

Comment by pompeypop

Must be this one.


Comment by Bob Elliott

Got it Bob. Interesting thing about scorecards – they can’t quite reveal the precise excitement of the final ball

Comment by pompeypop

Only got Henry, Barrington, Edrich & Statham, although I suspected David Allen was there.
The scorecard is probably not contemporary, though – the Players have been allowed initials before their names.
As ever, all the best bowlers were on the Players’ side.
