Back to work!

Gale, Henry (Pre ’95 – Amateur) born Winchester 11.7.1836, died Bournemouth 3.3.1898. Gale was a right-handed batsman who played at Marlborough School and then in five matches for Hampshire in 1856 & 1866, scoring 144 runs at an average of 18.00. His best score of 44 was on debut v Middlesex at Islington when Hampshire were dismissed for 89, and in the next match he scored 42 v Surrey at the Oval. He played for Norfolk from 1864-1866. We have no records of him playing after 1866 (age 30).

Galpin, John George (Pre ’95) born Gosport 13.1.1843, died Luton 5.3.1917. Galpin was a right-handed batsman and fast round-arm bowler who played in six matches 1875-1877 and one further in 1880 – Hampshire were not first-class in 1879. From 1870 he played a number of matches in the midlands and north of England, including non first-class matches for Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire. For Hampshire, he took 28 wickets at 16.50 with a best of 6-68 v Kent at the Riding Field, Winchester, despite which Hampshire lost by an innings, and 5-42 v Derbyshire at the Antelope in 1876. In the latter he came to the wicket at number 11, to join RG Hargreaves (35*) and scored 1* as they added the ten runs Hampshire needed to win by one wicket. Derbyshire’s Mycroft had match figures of 17-103, one of two occasions when an opposition bowler has taken 17 Hampshire wickets – and Hampshire won both.

Gandy, Christopher Henry (68) born London 24.6.1867, died Brentwood 18.6.1907. Gandy a left-arm opening bowler was one of 19 debutants for Hampshire’s very weak side of 1900. He took 2-84 at the Oval in an innings defeat (recording a ‘pair’), and 1-33 in a seven wicket defeat v Somerset at Bath where after a third ‘duck’ he reached 6* in his final innings for the county. In that same season he played a few 2nd XI matches.

Garaway, Mark (431) born Swindon 20.7.1973. Garaway was one of those wicketkeepers who was unfortunate to understudy an established player; in his case ‘Adi’ Aymes. He appeared in four first-class matches between 1996-1999, although none were in the Championship, and also in two limited overs games. He was born in Swindon, but learned his cricket on the Isle of Wight, playing for Ventnor, and he subsequently played in the Southern League for Waterlooville and Winchester. For Hampshire his best score was 55 v New Zealanders at Southampton in 1999, an innings that helped them to draw the game with one wicket standing. Since leaving Hampshire he has enjoyed a very successful career as an analyst (at one time with England) and as a coach. He is currently in charge of cricket at Millfield School.

Garnier, Rev. Thomas Parry (Pre ’95 – Amateur) born 22.2.1841, died Switzerland 18.3.1898. He was a right-handed batsman who attended Winchester College and then Oxford University, winning his ‘blue’ in all three years, 1861-1863. In the following year he played once for Hampshire v Middlesex at the Antelope, scoring 6 & 23 in a ten-wicket defeat. In 1863 he played for Lincolnshire and in 1864 for Norfolk. His father, uncle and brother all played first-class cricket.

Mark Garaway spoke to HCS in January. It was one of the most interesting of talks. His achievements since leaving the game have been substantial. Besides his time in the England set-up, he was first team coach at Somerset, where his achievements were impressive, and became Director of Cricket for Ireland. He has developed a substantial coaching portfolio across many sports. He is currently working on a consultancy basis for Exeter Chiefs, the Premiership rugby union Champions. Perhaps one of the most interesting of his former roles was assisting the goalkeeping coach at Newcastle United when Sir Bobby Robson was manager. Robson was apparently a great cricket lover and wanted to talk more about the game than football! A full report of the meeting will be in the February HCS Newsletter.
