jack bond Biography

The former cricketer was born on 6 May 1932 in Kearsley, United Kingdom. He starts his cricket career playing in Bolton Cricket League for Walkden.

Bond was a right-handed middle order batsman and joined Lancashire in 1955, being assured of a regular place in a strong batting line-up in only a few seasons.

when he scored 2,125 runs at an average of more than 36. But by the mid-1960s, he was second eleven captain and an irregular first-class cricketer.

Bond led a previously under-achieving side to a run of success in one-day cricket competitions that has not been equaled.

Intensively competitive, Bond led by example in the field and often made useful runs, normally batting at No 6 or lower.

A mostly young team included future England cricketers such as Barry Wood, David Lloyd, Frank Hayes, Peter Lever, and Ken Shuttleworth, and Lancashire recruited proven matchwinners in Clive Lloyd and Farokh Engineer as the overseas stars.

Bond was named as a Wisden Cricketer of the Year for his captaincy in 1971. He also took a famous catch to dismiss Asif Iqbal, which turned the Gillette Cup Final that year.

He retired from Lancashire after the 1972 season then came back unsuccessfully to first-class cricket as player-manager of Nottinghamshire for a single season in 1974.

In the mid-1970s, Bond moved to the Isle of Man, becoming head coach and cricket professional at King William’s College.

He also revealed himself as a fine table tennis player, leading the KWC team to the top of the Manx leagues and winning the island championships himself. He returned to Old Trafford in the 1980s, as the manager of Lancashire.
