1850 – 1915
Who was Alan Barnes?
Barnes was born in Anfield, and his brother John was a barrister. Barnes made his debut cricketing appearance for MCC against South Wales Cricket Club during the 1874 season, in which, despite finishing on a duck in the first innings from the upper order, the team recovered to win by a comfortable margin. Barnes' debut first-class appearance came three years later, for MCC against Oxford University, in which the university side finished on 12 all out in the first innings, in a game scheduled for three days but finished in just a single day.
Barnes died in Twyford Abbey at the age of 64. His nephew, Ronald, played first-class cricket for Oxford University and, most notably, Marylebone Cricket Club, during the early part of the twentieth century.
