Harold Heygate

Harold Heygate, brother of R.B., was a right hand opening batsman who played 6 matches between 1903 and 1919 scoring 250 runs with a top score of 80 and an average of 25.00.

An unusual incident took place during his short career when he was given out by the umpire when, suffering from arthritis, he did not appear at the crease within two minutes of the fall of the previous wicket, the only example of such a dismissal in first-class cricket. As the scores were level at the time the match between Sussex and Somerset at Taunton in 1919 was tied.
