Leburn and Learie Constantine from Trinidad and Tobago
Yes it happened at Bourda the first time a father and son featured in the same first class match at the Regional Level was October 1922 when Trinidadians Leburn and Learie Constantine represented Trinidad in a losing cause against Barbados. Batting first Trinidad suffered an Innings and 173 runs defeat.
Scorers: Trinidad first Innings 359 all out V.S. Pascall 92, C. Fraser 69 not out, G. A. Dewhurst 58, Learie Constantine 17, Leburn Constantine 6. Bowling for Barbados J. S. Hoad took 3 for 131. Herman Griffith took 3 for 101.
Barbados first Innings 673 all out P. H. Tarilton 100, George Challenor 96,
J.M. Kidney 73, Herman Griffith 60, H. B. G Austin 53 and Dr. L. Hutson 45.
Bowling for Trinidad V.S Pascall took 3 for 146, C. Fraser 2 for 76, J. A. Small 2 for 111. Trinidad Second Innings 141 all out W.H. St. Hill 36 and F. De Gannes 30.
The historical Constantine only mustard 14 runs between them in the Trinidadians second innings. Learie scored 13, while his dad scored a single before he was caught behind off the bowling of J. S. Hoad. Bowling for Barbados Hermon Griffith took 4 for 37, and J.S. Hoad 4 for 38.
The Constantines feat was emulated 92 years later when the Chanderpauls, Shivnarine and Tagenarine represented Guyana against Trinidad and Tobago at the Queens Part Oval. (Charmaine Walker)
