Martin Horton: Cricketer whose all-round skills helped Worcestershire to their first two county titles
Wednesday 06 April 2011
As a county cricketer Martin Horton was in the first rank. A busy, intelligent all-rounder with Worcestershire, he combined the specialist roles of opening batsman and off-spinner so effectively that in 1961 he did the "double", with 1,808 runs and 101 wickets, the only opener since the war to perform the feat. County cricket was a relentless circuit of three-day matches, 35 in little more than four months of that long, hot summer, and between the gruelling coach journeys Horton, a strongly built man of average height, batted 66 times and bowled almost 900 overs.

The last thing England needed yesterday was another back-row injury, so news of the Leeds flanker Hendre Fourie's damaged calf muscle was deeply unwelcome. Fourie, an important part of the red-rose set-up ahead of the Six Nations Championship, was under the care of the medical team as the squad gathered in Portugal for a week of intensive tournament preparation. Should he go the same way as Tom Croft and Lewis Moody, neither of whom are expected to play much of a part in the competition, Martin Johnson and his back-room colleagues will be in serious strife.

Matt Stevens, persona non grata for the last season and a half after testing positive for cocaine and scheduled to remain among rugby's untouchables for another five months, will have an awful lot of ground to make up when he finally resurfaces at Saracens early in 2011. Yet it is not out of the question that he will complete the catching-up process sufficiently quickly to resume international duty with England at the World Cup later next year, especially if his new employers play him on the loosehead side of the scrum.
