Accrington Cricket Club

1919 Completed Scorecard Archive

Friday May 30th 2008

The 1919 season is now complete in the scorecard archive.

On the resumption of league action in 1919, Accrington signed George Leach the former Sussex middle order batsman and right arm fast medium bowler as professional. George had two seasons with the club, helping it to third place in the league in 1919 when he took 108 wickets and scored 602 runs. Accrington also retained the Hacking Cup, a forerunner to the Worsley Cup, in 1919 by defeating East Lancs in the final. The club had also won the trophy in its first season, 1917. As Accrington roared into the 1920s the team was changing. The championship side was breaking up with Billy Ormerod retiring, Arnold Chadwick living in London, George Parker coming to the end of his career and both Johnny Pollard and Alec Jackson leaving to take up professional appointments in other leagues. New names were emerging like all rounder Stansfield Smith, batsman Johnson Moore, son of John, slow left armer Dick Eddleston and wicketkeeper Jim Inman.
