Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ken Higgs was an English fast-medium bowler, who was most successful as the opening partner to Brian Statham with Lancashire in the 1960s. He later played with success for Leicestershire. Cricket writer, Colin Bateman, noted, "Higgs was a fine medium-fast bowler with an impressive pedigree, who suddenly went out of fashion with the selectors after one Test of the 1968 Ashes series." In his junior days concentrating on football with Port Vale, Higgs did not take seriously to cricket until his late teens. He was signed to the club from July 1954 to 1959, but never made a first team appearance. Making progress during military service, he began playing for his native county, Staffordshire, taking 46 wickets for 13.13 each in 1957. Jack Ikin, a Staffordshire native, recommended Higgs to Lancashire and he began playing for them in 1958.Higgs caused instant notice taking 7 for 36 against Hampshire in his first County Championship matchshow more
