Roger Winlaw (1912-1942)

Roger WinlawThe decade after Claude Ashton left Winchester College, Winlaw became a
high profile member of the
Winchester College cricket
eleven.
Between 1928 and 1931, he
won the Public Schools
Doubles with HJH Lamb, the
first Wykehamist pair to do
so. He captained in his last
two seasons, heading the
batting and bowling
averages in 1930. Winlaw
went on to play for
Cambridge University and
later Surrey and, like Ashton
before him, also played
football for Corinthians. In a
final tragic coincidence,
Winlaw died in the same
fatal plane crash that took
the life of Claude Ashton who
was piloting.
