This short newsreel item sees Jack Hobbs taking the final runs for his 124th century at Lord's on 16 July 1925. Two short of WG Grace's record of 126 centuries, a month later Hobbs would equal and pass that milestone with two centuries against Somerset at Taunton. In this match, Hobbs captains the Players team - the professionals - in the Gentlemen v Players match, a fixture at Lord's between 1806 and 1962.
