Notes / History Englishman Andrew Sandham (b.1890) was a cricketing legend. In his first match for Mitcham in 1908 he scored a hundred runs.
Sandham is a batsman forever etched into the fabric of cricket folklore having scored the first treble century in a test match during England’s 1930 tour against the West Indies.
Sandham formed a formidable and long-lasting partnership with the great Jack Hobbs, and he was only overshadowed because of Hobbs’ other-worldly cricketing attributes.
Sandham represented his country in 14 test matches.
