John Hampshire. Yorkshire & England Cricket Collection

John Harry Hampshire. Yorkshire, Tasmania, Derbyshire & England (1941-2017). John Hampshire, also known as Jack Hampshire, was a first class cricketer and umpire, who played eight Tests for England between 1969 and 1975. He played cricket for Yorkshire from 1961 to 1981 and for Derbyshire from 1982 to 1984. He captained Yorkshire in 1979 and 1980. Overseas, he was a successful captain of Tasmania in the period before the state was included in the Sheffield Shield. He was also appointed President of Yorkshire County Cricket Club in 2016, serving until his death in March 2017. He scored 28,059 first class runs at an average of 34.55 with 43 centuries and a highest score of 183no. On his Test debut against the West Indies at Lord's, he made a dashing 107 and he appeared set for a glittering Test career. He was the first Englishman to score a Test hundred on debut at Lord's. Strangely, he was dropped after the next match, and faded away from the Test arena, making just half a dozen more Test appearances for England. He was a first class umpire from 1985 to 2005 and officiated in twenty one Test matches.
