Jones, George Leonard (284 – Amateur) born Lockerbie, Scotland 11.2.1909, died Shropshire 17.6. 1954. At one time his death was reported in Normandy, France on D-Day, 6.6.1944, but recently corrected. He played for Dorset from 1925-1934 and in 1937, appeared in nine matches as a batsman, but scored just 169 runs at 14.08, with a best of 37* v the New Zealanders. His Championship average was 11.00. His best day with Hampshire was a friendly match v Isle of Wight at Newport, when he opened the batting and scored 80.

Jones, Simon Philip (508) born Swansea, 25.12.1978. Right-arm fast bowler Jones is best known for his England Test career when playing for his native county Glamorgan, and particularly for his part in the famous ‘Ashes’ series of 2005, and three years before that, the terrible injury he suffered in the field in a Test Match in Brisbane. In 2005 he took 23 wickets at 21.13 but missed the final Test and never played for England again as the injury continued to cause him difficulties. In 2010, he left Glamorgan and joined Hampshire, seeking to regain his fitness. He stayed for two seasons but played in just two first-class matches, taking five wickets. There were also six limited overs matches and a further nine wickets, and he played most regularly in T20 games – 14 with 23 wickets, including 4-10 on tour in Barbados. In the middle of that second season, he returned to Glamorgan where he played in just one further first-class match, although he continued until 2013 in limited-overs games, and in his last match he took 2-36 in the YB 40 overs Final at Lord’s. In 2006 he was one of the ‘Ashes’-winning team awarded an MBE.

Joseph, Linden Anthony (412) born Georgetown Guyana 8.1.1969. Linden Joseph came to Hampshire for the season of 1990, playing regularly for the 2nd XI but also in six first-class matches. Although he was selected as a pace bowler he has an ‘interesting’ first-class batting record for the county having scored 152 runs in five innings, but only dismissed once, leaving him with an average of 152.00. His best innings and highest career score was 69* v Oxford University. His bowling was less effective however, with just seven wickets at 66.00. He left Hampshire and in the next two seasons played in England for Enfield in the Lancashire League but he played the majority of his 39 first-class matches for Guyana, while also appearing for West Indies ‘A’ and under-23s, and overall from 1986-1995, he took 98 first-class wickets at 29.75.

Judd, Arthur Kenneth (234 – Amateur) born 1.1.1904, died Newton Abbot, Devon 15.2.1988. He was principally a batsman, although bowling leg-breaks, he took 30 first-class wickets for a variety of first-class sides. After school at St Paul’s he won his ‘blue’ at Cambridge University in 1927, by which time he had also made his Hampshire debut. From 1925-1935 he appeared in 64 matches for the county although in the 1930s his appearances were restricted after a posting in Nigeria. He played most regularly in 1927 and 1930, and although he appeared only occasionally in 1931, 1933 and 1935, he sometimes deputised as (amateur) captain, when Tennyson was not available. He scored 1,625 runs for Hampshire at an average of 17.47 with one century, 119 out of 465 v Warwickshire at Portsmouth in 1926, plus five half-centuries. He continued to play in Nigeria until 1938.

Judd, William George (Pre ’95 – Amateur) born Bramshaw, New Forest 23.10.1845, died Boscombe 12.3.1925. He played in just one first-class match for Hampshire, v Kent at the Antelope Ground in 1878. In a defeat by 98 runs, he batted last, scoring 7 & 1, with bowling figures of 0-28 and 1-22. In the previous year he stood as an umpire in Hampshire’s first-class match v Derbyshire, also at the Antelope.

And that is the last J
