From Outer Space

The following is an extract from a report in The Times of October 1964 on a County Championship match between Devon and Gloucestershire at Exeter:

FROM OUTER SPACE

The patriarchal figure of Ford, the Gloucestershire captain, who won his first England cap at a time when most players are thinking of giving up the game, led Devon a merry dance until he was forcibly led from the field with an unpleasant gash in his pate. But he got his own way with those offering succour on the touchline, and re-entered the fray so heavily bandaged that he looked like a creature from outer space.

Gloucestershire won the game 37-0!
