Gerry Tordoff

George Gerald "Gerry" Tordoff (6 December 1929 – 16 January 2008) played first-class cricket for Somerset, Cambridge University and the Combined Services in the 1950s and early 1960s.

A left-handed batsman who could open the innings or bat in middle order and a right-arm medium-pace change bowler, Tordoff had two seasons of virtually full-time cricket in 1952 and 1955, but was otherwise restricted by his career in the Royal Navy to occasional matches. He was given leave of absence by the Navy to captain Somerset in the 1955 season, but when the season was over, he resigned the captaincy and never appeared again for the county side.

Tordoff was born at Whitwood, Yorkshire and died at Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire.
