Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

The random article for Thursday, 13 December 2018 is John Glennie.

John David Glennie (18 April 1825 – 7 January 1903) was an English clergyman and educationalist who played a single first-class cricket match for Cambridge University in 1848. He was born at Sandgate, Folkestone, Kent and died at Croxton, Staffordshire.

Educated at King's School, Canterbury and Christ's College, Cambridge, Glennie made little impact in his solitary first-class cricket match, which came against a team of Kent amateurs: he scored one run in his two innings and failed to take a wicket. There are no records of him appearing in any other cricket matches, first-class or non-first-class.Glennie was ordained as a Church of England clergyman after leaving Cambridge, and was a church inspector of schools for some years, later recording his experiences in a book. From 1869 to his death in 1903 he was the vicar of Croxton, Staffordshire.
