High tempered Derbyshire player who took 1,000 wickets during a career that spanned from 1932-1950.
He never played cricket as a kid, but during the 1926 General Strike, his co-workers convinced him to start playing.
He made three tests during his career, but World War II kept him from making any more.
He was born in Stonebroom, Derbyshire, and died in Clay Cross, Derbyshire.
He is one of an elite list of players to take at least five wickets on their test debut, along with stars such as Syed Abid Ali.
