John Woodcock (cricket writer)
Woodcock attended Trinity College, Oxford, and won hockey Blues in 1946 and 1947. He went on the England tour of Australia in 1950-51 as a newsreel cameraman for the BBC. He subsequently worked for the Manchester Guardian for a couple of years.
Unlike other notable cricket journalists such as John Arlott and E.W. Swanton, little of his writing is available in book form. He did, however, write The Times One Hundred Greatest Cricketers, Macmillan, 1998, ISBN 0-333-73641-9.
