Who was Bernard Lock?

Bernard Henry Lock was an English cricketer. He was a right-handed batsman. He was born in Exeter and died in Dover.

Lock made his Minor Counties debut in the 1928 season, at the age of just thirteen, for Surrey Second XI. He made at least three Minor Counties appearances for the team between 1928 and 1929 - but did not pick up another Minor Counties Championship appearance for five more years.

Lock made occasional Minor Counties appearances for Devon between 1934 and 1939, and played for Devon again in 1947 and 1948 before transferring to Kent's second eleven from 1949.

Lock made his debut first-class appearance just after his 37th birthday in 1952 for Kent against Oxford University. He made 2 runs in the first innings he batted and 57 in his second innings, batting as an opener alongside Peter Hearn.

Lock's second and final first-class appearance came in 1955, for Marylebone Cricket Club, again playing against Oxford University.

Lock made four further Minor Counties appearances for Devon during the 1957 season.
