Middlesex Cricket is extremely sad to report the death of Middlesex legend Alan Moss at the age of 88.
‘Mossy’, as he was affectionately known to many, played for the club between the years 1950 and 1968 and made 310 Middlesex appearances. He served as Committee member, Treasurer and Chairman of the Club and was elected President in 2003. He also served as Chairman of the Middlesex Cricket Board.
In first-class cricket, Alan took 1,088 wickets for Middlesex and took over 100 first-class wickets in a season on five separate occasions – his best haul of 136 wickets coming in the 1960 season.
He is the eighth highest first-class wicket taker in the club’s history and made 9 Test appearances for his country.
Middlesex President John Emburey said:
“Alan was a long-serving member of the club as both a player and committee member - two roles he served with distinction.
“He will be sorely missed by all at Middlesex and at Lord’s in particular. Our thoughts are with his family and many friends at this saddest of times.”
