    Indeed!

    Couldn’t help noticing the unfortunately name W Shittler. More of a coincidence if you wrote it as WS Hittler and you notice that he took a catch off the bowling of Churchill.

    Hi Allison.

    There is an account of M. J. Druitt playing cricket, along with his brother William, in Wimborne on 30th of August 1873. He had just turned 16 two weeks earlier, and was on summer break from Winchester.

    He may also have played for the Ringwood Club the following week, Sept. 5th, but it's unclear; there is a Druitt listed as playing, but the score card doesn't identify whether it was William or Monty. It may well have been MJD, as he would have been still on break.

    In his book, D. J. Leighton refers to MJD playing for Winchester's 2nd XI team by the age of 16, but my educated guess is that this wouldn't have been until the Spring of 1874. He refers to the 'Two Guinea Match' which is played in the Spring, which is why I believe he didn't make the school team until 1874.

    (Leighton's lack of notes is often frustrating).

    Good luck with your research.

    I know nothing whatsoever about Druitt. Is this him in 1870?

    Ringwood, of course, is in Hampshire, as is Winchester.

    Hi Phil,

    Absolutely agreed, on both counts. By all accounts he was quite a competent cricketer and was also of course involved in the running of the club off the field. It'd be interesting to know what "locker room talk" there was about the Ripper case at the time.

    Cheers,
    Adam.

    There are. If you go to this page and scroll down a bit, you'll find links to a couple of scorecards from matches he played in 1888, including the September 8 match which was of course later on the same day Annie Chapman was murdered.

    Yes, it's him and his brother William. The grew up in Wimborne.

    And yes, I see Ringwood is indeed over the county line, but it's still only ten miles from Wimborne, which was my point; MJD played in Wimborne only a week earlier, while on summer break, so it very likely him in Ringwood on the 5th.
    They buggered about with the county boundaries in the 1970s and Bournemouth got dragged into Dorset from Hants. A lot of people get very hot under the collar about the integrity of the ancient counties.

    As you say, Ringwood is only just in Hampshire and not far from Wimborne.
