Statistician of the Year 1986 – George Russ

The inaugural Statistician of the Year award, sponsored by the Hamlyn Publishing Group, was made to the late George Russ. Mr Russ had been for some years the keeper of Surrey CCC’s records and their Second Eleven scorer. He was an active member of the ACS in its early days, and contributed largely to its publication on Surrey Cricketers. Andrew Branson of Hamlyn presented the trophy to his daughter, June Jones, who thanked the Association and said she was sure that her father would have much appreciated the honour bestowed upon him.
