Ted Dexter CBE: Ted Dexter’s love of cricket started at school. His success in university cricket at Cambridge led to his joining Sussex County Cricket Club. Under his captaincy the county won the first Gillette Cup competition at a time when one day cricket was in its infancy. In his fairly short first class career he played in more than sixty test matches, thirty of them as captain. A serious accident in 1964 led to his virtual retirement as a player but from 1988 to 1993 he was chairman of the England selectors and also became President of the MCC.

 Cliff Morgan OBE CVO: “Morgan the Magnificent” was the title given to Cliff Morgan by South African newspapers when he toured the country with the British Lions team in 1955. His success in that tour earned him the captaincy of Wales the following season. Cliff was born into a mining family in the Rhondda in 1930 and joined Cardiff Rugby Club straight from school, playing at fly-half. The first of his 29 caps for Wales was won in 1951. When his playing career ended in 1958 he became a successful broadcaster and manager with the BBC. He died in 2013.
