1930s Odds & Ends

Motor-cycle Hazard

IN THE 1933 match at Chorleywood, P. Kingsley scored 100 for Chorleywood, hitting several shots into the road.

Radlett’s A. L. Baucher fielding in the deep was positioned for the catch a few yards in from the road.

Sure enough, Kingsley hit a half volley out of the ground over Baucher’s head while the fielder with his eyes glued to the ball in mid-flight slowly back-tracked towards the road and failed to notice a motor-cycle parked in his way.

He was next seen disappearing head over heels over the bike with his legs in the air onto some hot tarmac. He slowly arose very much the worse for wear.
