Ernest Tyldesley

Died aged 73

George Ernest Tyldesley (5 February 1889 – 5 May 1962) was an English cricketer. The younger brother of Johnny Tyldesley and the leading batsman for Lancashire. He remains Lancashire's most prolific run-getter of all time. Tyldesley went on the 1928/29 [Ashes] Tour, where he played in one test, and played only four times in a home Ashes Test, but in 1921 he did very well in the last two games, scoring 78 at Old Trafford.
