Having looked at those players who died 100 years ago Paul Dyson turns his attention to those who played in their first or last matches for Yorkshire in 1921.

Despite scoring 100 not out and 80 not out in his first match for Yorkshire, Cec Tyson played in only two more games and that was the end of his career with the White Rose county. The first Yorkshire player to score a century in his maiden first-class match, that being against Hampshire at Southampton, Tyson was born at Brompton-by-Sawdon, near Scarborough, in 1889. At the advanced age of 32 he was being tried as a possible successor to David Denton, who had retired at the end of the previous season, in the important number three position.
