Tom George Buckland (20 November 1860 – 18 July 1915) was an English cricketer. Buckland was a right-handed batsman who bowled right-arm fast-medium. He was born at Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire. He was registered at birth as Tom George Beastall.

Buckland made two first-class appearances for Nottinghamshire in 1888, against Sussex and Surrey, with both matches played at Trent Bridge. [1] In his first match, Sussex won the toss and elected to bat, making 97 all out in their first-innings, with Buckland taking the wickets of Walter Andrews and Walter Humphreys to finish with figures of 2/13 from thirteen overs. Nottinghamshire responded in their first-innings by making 240 all out, with Buckland ending the innings not out on 9. Sussex were then dismissed for just 69 in their second-innings, with Buckland once again taking two wickets, those of Willie Quaife and Andrews, taking figures of 2/20 from fourteen overs. Nottinghamshire won by an innings and 74 runs. [2] In his second match, Nottinghamshire won the toss and elected to bat first, making 187 all out, with Buckland scoring 12 runs before he was dismissed by Thomas Bowley. Surrey responded to that by making 237 all out in their first-innings, during which he bowled seventeen wicketless overs, conceding 25 runs. In their second-innings, Nottinghamshire made 131 all out, with Buckland run out for 2, to set Surrey 82 for victory. Surrey reached that target in their second-innings with just one wicket lost, with Buckland bowling eight wicketless overs in it. [3]

He died at the town of his birth on 18 July 1915.

Gloucestershire County Cricket Club in 2005 are playing their cricket in Division One of both the County Championship and totesport League. They started the Championship at 18–1 to win it, and as one of the teams most likely to be relegated from it. So they were—only their five draws prevented them from finishing bottom, and they were the only team to lose to bottom-placed Glamorgan. By the end of August, they were relegated, with three games to spare. In the National League, they were never better than sixth at any time during the season, and lost three games in succession to be ninth before the final round of matches. They won their last match, but were still relegated due to a worse net run rate than Lancashire. They were thus the first club to suffer double relegation since Leicestershire in 2003. Their Twenty20 and C&G Trophy campaigns ended almost as early as they could have done—Gloucestershire did get past the first round of the C&G Trophy, beating Berkshire, but were knocked out by Surrey.

Glamorgan County Cricket Club started their 2005 season as defending totesport League champions, but the 2005 season ended without a trophy – instead, they suffered relegation in the first class form. They played their first-class cricket in the First Division of the County Championship. They started the Championship season at 25–1 to win, and favourites to be relegated – which they eventually were, winning one of sixteen games in the Championship season to finish bottom – nearly 100 points behind the first team to avoid relegation. By the end of August, they had confirmed relegation with three games remaining. In the National League, they hovered around mid-table for most of the season, before a run of three unbeaten games at the end of August sent them out of the relegation zone, and they finished the season in fourth place. In the C&G Trophy, they were knocked out at the second round stage by eventual champions Hampshire, while the Twenty20 campaign saw them finish bottom of their group with two wins from eight matches.
