Major teams Hampshire
Batting style Left-hand bat
Left-arm bowler [underarm]
Noah Mann [Jnr]
Born 1783, Northchapel, Sussex
Died 1825, London [aged 42 years]

The skills were obviously inherited as he was only aged 6 when his father died.
The public house in nearby Lurgashall is named The Noahs Ark and although no mention is made of him in their pub history the name seems more than a coincidence. If anyone knows better....let us know.
