Clippings

POWER OF HAMMOND.

ENGLAND PLAYER IN MAKING.

Hammond, the Gloucester cricketer, showed to-day once more that he will be a strong candidate for England honours. Despite two centuries-by Dipper and Hammond-Gloucester had to follow on at the Oval on Thursday and lost two valuable wickets for 6 runs before stumps were drawn. Smith (6) and Hammond (0) resumed Gloucester's innings, and in less than an hour Hammond had completed a brilliant 50 out of 63.

Men who play and those who watch alike consider that Walter Reginald Hammond has a future as a Test match player, for he is palpably a brilliant bat, a magnificent fielder on the offside of the wicket, and quite a useful change bowler, although not very much enamoured of the attack. The son of a soldier, he was born at Dover on June 3, 1903, and after wandering about in China and Malta with his parents on foreign stations, he was sent to a boarding school at Cirencester, where he improved the rudimentary knowledge of the game that he had picked up on the barrack square at Malta. From there he went to Winchester Agricultural College, but instead of becoming a farmer he decided to take up the life of a professional footballer and cricketer. What occurred was that the headmaster of Cirencester wrote to the Gloucester club about the boy, who had evidently natural aptitude. He was played against Lancashire at Cheltenham during August 1920. However, in 1922 Kent discovered that Hammond had been born at Dover, and they insisted that there was a flaw in his qualification. Eventually Hammond reappeared, and nothing more has been said about his position, but he lost 1921 and 1922. He resided at Bristol, and turned out again in 1923. In his first match against Surrey at Bristol, he hit 110 and 92, and in that season amassed 1356 runs. He went out to the West Indies two years ago with the M.C.C. team, and was looked upon as a Test probable when a serious illness made play impossible for him last season. He has returned again to renew the claims of youth.
