Pelham Francis Warner MBE (2nd. October 1873- 30th. January 1963)
Wisden Cricketer of the year 1904 and a special portrait 1921
Actually born in the West Indies but captain of Middlesex and England
and had the misfortune to be Manager of the England touring party to
Australia in 1932/33 (bodyline). He was much too nice a gentleman to
have been subjected to that!

last match against their Arch Rivals Surrey!
