Escott Frith Loney (21 July 1903 – 19 June 1982) was an English cricketer who played first class cricket for Derbyshire between 1925 and 1927.

Life[edit]

Born in Bristol, Loney made his debut for Derbyshire in the 1925 season in July against Leicestershire with modest scores, a few overs bowling and catching the opening batsman. He played six matches for the club in 1925 with a season's best bowling of 4 for 35 against Glamorgan . In the 1926 season he played six matches with his top score of 39 not out against Warwickshire and his best bowling of 4 for 27 against Somerset. He played more matches in the 1927 season although he bowled less without taking a wicket. Loney was a left-hand batsman who played 37 innings in 25 first class matches with an average of 17.03 and a top score of 39 not out. He was a right-arm medium-fast bowler and took 20 wickets for an average of 32.50 and a best performance of 4 for 27.[1]

By 1933 Loney had moved to Toronto in Canada, and subsequently performed in various miscellaneous matches for Canadian sides. He played a match for Toronto Cricket Club against Sir Julian Cahn's XI in 1933. In 1936 he toured England with R C Matthews' XI and he played three matches for different Canadian sides in 1937. In 1951 at the age of 48 he opened the batting in a match for Toronto against MCC scoring 58.

Loney died at Toronto, Ontario, Canada at the age of 78. He is buried in York Cemetery.
