Hampshire Cricket

Many men who has played county cricket for Hampshire went off to fight in the Great War, and 23 of them - more than any other county - did not return. Their names are honoured on the board within the Ageas Bowl's Arlott Atrium. Hampshire Cricket has joined up with The Royal British Legion for the #ThankYou project to acknowledge those who kept the club alive from 1914-1918, and those who returned from War to rebuild the club, the sport and the country. 

Amongst these brave men were leaders such as: Major Lionel Tennyson who captained England in 1921 and Hampshire until 1934, Major Harry Altham a great cricket historian who led school and youth coaching development, or Jack Newman who went with his professional pals to India, Burma and the Afghan War, returning in 1919 to take his place for the next decade as one of the greatest county all-rounders.
