Name  Bill Greensmith

Role  Cricket Player

William Thomas (Bill) Greensmith (born 16 August 1930) is a former English cricketer who played in 379 first-class matches, most of them for Essex, between 1947 and 1963. He was born in Middlesbrough, then in Yorkshire.

Greensmith played as an all-rounder: a right-handed batsman usually batting in the lower middle order, and a right-arm leg-spin and googly bowler. Without ever hitting the heights – he never scored 1000 runs in a season and nor did he ever take 100 wickets – he was an integral part of the Essex team from the start of the 1951 season through to 1963, when he was replaced in some games by Robin Hobbs and retired at the end of the season.
