Holdingwilley The second best way to enjoy cricket


Hedley Verity

"Verily, virile, Verity.
With wonderful skill and dexterity
In a very few overs
He made Notts the rovers
A record to hand to posterity."

J.B. Fecknall published this in the Nottingham Evening News, four days after Hedley Verity took 10 for 10 in a First-class match. The best ever bowling figures in a FC match.
