Cyril Hawker

Sir Frank Cyril Hawker (21 July 1900 — 22 February 1991) was an English cricketer. He was a right-handed batsman who played first-class cricket for Essex. He was born in Epping and died in Hastings.

Hawker made a single first-class appearance for Essex during the 1937 season, playing against Lancashire in an innings defeat highlighted by a double-century from Eddie Paynter. Hawker made just 26 runs in the two innings in which he played, and was never selected to play for the team again.

Hawker was chairman of the Amateur FA from 1971-71.[1] He was also a high ranking official in the bank of England who he joined in 1920.[2] He left the Bank of England to become the first chairman of Standard Chartered.[3]
