Biography

Clement Deykin was one of the forwards in the Moseley Wanderers team at the Paris Olympics and was, at the time, the only current County player in the team. In one four day spell between 24-28 October 1900 he played for the Midland Counties against East Midlands and three days later played for his club-side Moseley against Coventry and then, within 24 hours, he had crossed the Channel to play in the Paris tournament, and then return to England! Deykin was a manufacturing jeweler by trade and in 1901 he launched a revolutionary machine, after six years of research and development, for manufacturing rings in a fraction of the time it previously took to make them by hand.
