Hayward Arthur John (237) born Christchurch 12.9.1905, details of death unknown. He is described as a batsman and leg-break bowler, but in his four matches for Hampshire in 1925 & 1926 he did not bowl – even when, on his debut, Middlesex scored 456. Meanwhile, batting mostly in the lower order, he scored just 17 runs in four innings.

Hayward, Mornantau (‘Nante’) (493) born South Africa 6.3.1977. Fast bowler ‘Nante’ Hayward played in 16 Test Matches and 21 ODIs for South Africa, and in England he played for four counties, including Hampshire in 2008. He was signed principally to play in the T20 competition and in ten matches he took 13 wickets at 21.38, but after Hampshire’s involvement in that competition ended, he also appeared once in a Championship match, a defeat v Nottinghamshire at the Rose Bowl. He took 2-87 in the first innings but after one ball of his fourth over in the second, he left the field injured.

Hayward, Richard Edward (390) born Ickenham, Middlesex, 15.2.1954. He was a left-handed batsman who played for Middlesex 2nd XI in the early 1970s, for Buckinghamshire from 1978, and he played in one first-class match for the Minor Counties v the Indians in 1979. Shortly after, he began playing for Hampshire 2nd XI, and in July 1981 he made his first-class debut for the county v the Sri Lankans and became the third of six men to score a century on Hampshire debut (101*), but like the other five, this was his county, not first-class, debut. In 1981 & 1982 he played in 13 first-class matches for Hampshire, adding two half-centuries to his debut innings, with a average of 25.22. In 1985 he played for Somerset and scored 100* v Cambridge University, by which time he had emigrated to New Zealand where he played for Central Districts – captaining them in 1984/5. He returned to Hampshire as coach in the early 1990s.

Hazleton, Brigadier General Edwin Hills (Pre ’95 – Amateur) born Southampton 16.12.1861, died Simla, India 25.7.1916. He was a batsman who played in three first-class matches for Hampshire in 1883, scoring one half century on debut v Sussex at the Antelope Ground, and averaging 16.60. We have a record of him playing one match in India in 1888.

Heath, Allan Borman (Pre ’95 – Amateur) born East Woodhay, Hants 19.1.1865, died Devon 21.6.1913. He was a right-hand batsman, fast-medium bowler and good cover point, who made his first-class debut for Hampshire in 1883 while still at Cheltenham College. He played a total of seven matches for the county from 1883-1885, when they lost first-class status, although he returned to play a number of matches in 1892. In his first-class career he averaged 9.42 with the bat, including 42 v Somerset in 1884, and took 2-28 v Surrey in 1885, his only bowling for the county.
