It’s about time for an update. Some of these are now being corrected (beautifully) by hand but here are the lot (mostly repeats). Particular recent thanks to Colin Price.

John Arnold scored 2,000 not 2,00 runs

Tom Barber’s ‘number’ should read: (List A)

George Carter was born 1846, not 1946

Cecil Currie attended Marlborough College, not Marlborough School

Jimmy Gray’s number should read (314)

Granville Greenwood’s match at Lyndhurst was 1874 not 1974

Guy Jewell was born 1916, not 16

John Manners was 103 in April 2018, not 104

Matthew Salisbury’s ‘number’ is 548 not 348

Shahid Afridi also played in one List A match in 2016 (List A/T20)

Herbert Stewart’s memorial is in Hans Place, London, not Hans Crescent

Chris Tremlett played three first-class matches in May/June 2015, age 33

HE Webb scored 145* for Oxford University v Cambridge University at Lord’s 1948

The bibliography is missing:

P Bailey, P Thorne & P Wynne-Thomas (1984) Who’s Who of Cricketers

Annoying that I cannot print this to insert in the book.

Comment by Stephen Saunders

There’s probably a simpler way but I copied and pasted it to a notepad document.

Comment by Ian White

I’ll happily send it to anyone as a Word document

Dave, I expect you already know this but, just in case, Matt S.alisbury has signed a contract with Durham until the end of 2020 after making a big impression whilst on loan from Hants. I’ve followed his progress with interest as he has played for my local club, Shenfield, in Essex Premier League and I hoped Hants would take him on.

That’s not to be and maybe Durham’s gain will be Hants loss – time will tell. After all, he dimissed Ian Bell in his first over for Hants last year (2wkts in that first over) and dismissed him twice playing for Durham recently. But I know nothing!!!

Cheers Dave. Time will tell, but with Steyn gone, Wheal & Topley injured, Edwards in Canada who needs a pace bowler?
