1935 – Something of a Run Famine

Runs were difficult to come by. The first team only scored 2,576 runs against their opponents’ 2,792 from 20 games. Even so players did go berserk occasionally. In a second team game against St. Columba’s, E. C. W. Tuke did a ‘Botham’: he hit 127 in 70 minutes and his second 50 came in 13 minutes.
