Life and career
Alan Burgess's father Thomas was a cricket umpire who stood in a Test match in Christchurch in 1933.
Burgess became an apprentice upholsterer after leaving school. In his first first-class match in December 1940 Burgess played as a bowler, taking 6 for 52 and 3 for 51 with his left-arm spin against Otago. Later that season he batted as high as number seven, scoring 61 not out against Wellington.
He joined the New Zealand Army when he turned 21 in 1941, and was soon posted overseas. He served in Egypt and Italy as a tank driver in the Tank Brigade of the 20th Battalion. He fought in the Battle of Monte Cassino in 1944. After the war ended in Europe he toured England with the New Zealand Services team from July to September 1945, playing as a batsman. He made another score of 61 not out in the only first-class match.
In nine matches for Canterbury between 1945-46 and 1951-52 his top score was 42 against Auckland in 1950-51, when he put on 105 for the first wicket with Ray Emery.
He ran his own upholstery business in Christchurch. He was married twice, and has three children. He lives in Rangiora. He became New Zealand's oldest living first-class cricketer when Tom Pritchard died in August 2017.
Burgess celebrated his 100th birthday in May 2020. On 13 June 2020, following the death of Vasant Raiji, Burgess became the oldest living first-class cricketer. He died in Rangiora in January 2021 at the age of 100.
