  • David John Constant played 61 first-class cricket matches from 1961 to 1968 for Kent and Leicestershire. He later became an international cricket umpire, officiating in 36 Tests from 1971 to 1988 and 33 one-day internationals from 1972 to 2001. Constant commenced his first-class cricket career with English county side Kent in 1961, moving to Leicestershire in 1965 and playing there until 1968. He was a middle-order batsman, scoring in all 1517 runs at 19.20 with a highest score of 80. Tony Lewis described his innings against Glamorgan on a difficult pitch at Leicester in 1965 as "one of the bravest innings I ever saw". His first Test as umpire was the Third Test between England and Pakistan in July 1971; his colleague was Arthur Fagg. England won the match by 25 runs. He last stood in an international cricket match in the England v. Australia One Day International at The Oval, London in June 2001. He was the longest-serving umpire in county cricket, spending 38 years on the first-class umpires' list.
