Sussex Cricket is saddened to hear the news that former player Ted James passed away last week.
Ted played as a seam bowler for Sussex during the 1950's. Originally from Buckinghamshire, he began to play for Sussex in 1948 and was awarded his County Cap in 1950.
He made 299 first-class appearances for the County, taking 843 wickets with a best of 9 for 60 in a victory over Yorkshire at Hove. He was also useful with the bat and scored 3,411 first-class runs often helping Sussex out of a precarious position.
After leaving Sussex Ted was a popular coach at Eastbourne College for many years.
Ted passed away peacefully on Tuesday 2nd April aged 88.
Chairman Jim May said, "On behalf of Sussex County Cricket Club I would like to offer our condolences to Ted's widow Kitty and his family. Having made nearly 300 appearances for the Club he made a significant contribution to the Club".
His funeral takes place at Eastbourne Crematorium on Tuesday 16th April at 1.45pm and the family will be pleased for others to attend.
