Ex-England player Mortimore dies
Former England all-rounder and Gloucestershire captain John Mortimore has died, aged 80.
Off-spinner Mortimore played nine Tests between 1959 and 1964.
He was the bowler when Lancashire's David Hughes hit 24 runs in an over in a memorable and thrilling Gillette Cup semi-final in 1971.
Bristol-born 'Morty' Mortimore will be remembered in his native county, however, for a 25-year career in which he played 640 matches.
He was captain between 1965 and 1967, scored almost 16,000 first-class runs and took more than 1800 wickets.
A Gloucestershire statement read: "It is with deep sadness that Gloucestershire Cricket announces the death of former Gloucestershire and England all-rounder John "Morty" Mortimore, who passed away yesterday at the age of 80."
