Richard Harry Williams (23 April 1901—19 December 1982) was an English cricketer who played 37 first-class matches for Worcestershire between 1923 and 1932. He averaged barely 11 in his career, though his obituary in Wisden suggested that he had played "some useful innings". Williams was to make only three more first-class appearances: two in 1931 and one in 1932. His four innings produced scores of 2, 0, 0 and 1, bringing an unhappy end to his largely unsuccessful career in county cricket.

  • Richard Harry Williams (23 April 1901—19 December 1982) was an English cricketer who played 37 first-class matches for Worcestershire between 1923 and 1932. He averaged barely 11 in his career, though his obituary in Wisden suggested that he had played "some useful innings". Williams' career began very badly. In his first game, against Derbyshire, he made 4 and 2* in 1923.He did not appear again until 1925, when in his first nine innings of the season he made just 13 runs.He brought this dreadful sequence to a close with 23 against Sussex in early June, then followed it up with the first of just three half-centuries: 56 versus Nottinghamshire. This innings was a false dawn, however, and in Williams' next 30 innings he never made more than 41.By now it was August 1926, but then — admittedly after the match was dead— he produced what was to be his career-best innings: 81 against Nottinghamshire (again) at Trent Bridge.Another lengthy run of failures followed, and although he made an unbeaten 76 against Yorkshire in early May 1928,he was out of the side again by the start of June. Williams was to make only three more first-class appearances: two in 1931 and one in 1932. His four innings produced scores of 2, 0, 0 and 1, bringing an unhappy end to his largely unsuccessful career in county cricket. (en)
