Shooter made two first-class appearances for Nottinghamshire in 1881,against Surrey at The Oval,and Sussex at the County Ground,Hove.In his first match,Surrey won the toss and elected to bat first,making 293 all out. Shooter bowled 22 overs during the innings,conceding 36 runs. In response,Nottinghamshire were dismissed for 109,with Shooter being dismissed for a duck by Ted Barratt. Forced to follow-on in their second-innings,Nottinghamshire were dismissed for 162,with Shooter once again dismissed by Barratt,this time for 5 runs. Surrey won the match by an innings and 22 runs. In his second match against Sussex,Nottinghamshire won the toss and elected to bat first,making 174 all out,with Shooter ending the innings not out on 15.

The MCC University matches in 2005 are games played between the University Centre of Cricketing Excellence ("UCCEs") and first-class opposition. This is the first year the games are called "MCC" University matches,after the MCC announced a funding plan to support the development of student cricket.
Surrey County Cricket Club in 2005 are playing their cricket in the First Division of the County Championship and the Second Division of the totesport League. The 2004 season was a disappointment for Surrey under the captaincy of Jonathan Batty,who was replaced by Mark Butcher for 2005. However,Butcher was out for most of the season due to an injury to his left wrist,leaving Mark Ramprakash as interim captain –one of the few,maybe the only,man to captain both Surrey and their arch-rivals Middlesex.
Fred Barratt played first-class cricket for Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club from 1914 to 1931 and represented England in five Test matches,one in the home series against South Africa in 1929 and four on the inaugural Test series against New Zealand in the 1929–30 season. He was born in Annesley,Nottinghamshire and died at Nottingham General Hospital,Nottingham.
When the First World War ended in November 1918,thousands of Australian servicemen were in Europe as members of the First Australian Imperial Force (AIF) and many remained until the spring of 1919. In England,a new first-class cricket season was planned,the first since 1914,and an idea that came to fruition was the formation of an Australian touring side made up of servicemen. Agreement was reached with the Australian Corps HQ in London,commanded by Field Marshal William Birdwood,1st Baron Birdwood,and the Australian Imperial Force Touring XI was formed,initially under the captaincy of pre-war Test player Charlie Kelleway. Kelleway departed after only six matches following a dispute about the fixtures list. A players' meeting elected future Test player Herbie Collins as team captain for the remainder of the tour,despite the fact that Collins' military rank was lance corporal and there were seven officers in the party. The bulk of the team remained intact for nearly nine months from May 1919,playing 33 matches in Great Britain,ten in South Africa on their way home and then another three in Australia itself before disbanding in February 1920. Of the 46 matches,39 are adjudged first-class and the team had only four defeats,all of these in England. The players lived on their army pay and all profits from gate money went to an AIF Sports Control Board.
