Old Rossallian Cricket Team 1910


This is a picture of the 1910 Old Rossallian Cricket Team. It was taken during their game against Beverley Town Cricket Club, and was recently donated to the archives by the club.
The Old Rossallian team travelled to the Yorkshire Town on 11th July 1910 for the two day game. An article about the match was written in the Beverley Recorder on 16th July 1910, which stated that "the Rossallians colours were hoisted on the flag staff" and that the game was "most pleasant."
Despite a good innings of 46 from J.K. Lane the OR's were bowled out for 110, a score which Beverley reached for the loss of only four wickets.
Interestingly one of the OR's playing that day was Frank Mercer Bentley who died during World War One and will feature in the upcoming World War One Book of Remembrance.
