Alfred Jones (umpire)
He umpired 7 Test matches, involving Australia, six against England and one against South Africa. His first match, at Sydney on 11 December to 17 December 1903 was won comfortably by England in spite of Victor Trumper's 185 not out. Reggie Foster of England scored 287, still the highest score by a batsman on debut. Of slight build, Jones was photographed with the Australian team of that series, an event not likely to occur today. Jones' career lasted more than 25 years, as his last match was at Melbourne on 8 March to 16 March 1929, where he saw Don Bradman score a century in a victorious team.
