1902 – 1970
Who was Bev Lyon?
Beverley Hamilton "Bev" Lyon, born at Caterham, Surrey on 19 January 1902 and died at Balcombe, Sussex on 22 June 1970, was a cricketer who played for Oxford University and Gloucestershire. He was a bespectacled middle-order batsman and a fine close fielder who held forthright and, for his time, outspoken views on cricket captaincy and cricket traditions and who was given full rein by his county, Gloucestershire, to express his views as captain for six years from 1929.
