A Brief History of Brocklesby: No two brothers can ever have a greater influence on a club, both on and off the field. Peter had appeared in Wisden for his bowling at St Peter's [School, York].

The Peterite: P. B. BURBIDGE. 1956-57. Right arm opening bowler, medium fast. His length and direction have steadied down considerably and he has gained a greater measure of reward. In spite, however, of being able to claim quite often an early wicket or two, he has been unable to follow up this success and sustain the effort. His second spell of bowling has invariably been quite ineffective. He is a hard hitter, with a good enough eye to hit across a straight ball, but he must beware of the good length ball and the yorker. Fielding always reliable and good close to the wicket. - October 1957 P. B. BURBIDGE. 1956-57-58. Medium fast, right-arm opening bowler. Has received no encouragement this year from the slow wickets, nevertheless he has bowled with a considerable amount of "devil", and worked hard. A very safe fielder whether standing on the boundary or sitting practically on the splice. His batting always offered hopes of the big hits, but was not without its disappointments. - October 1958
