John Warr was a right-arm fast-medium bowler who won Blues in four years (1949-1952) at Cambridge, captaining the side in 1951. In 1950 he took 87 wickets in a summer split between university and county, earning selection in a woefully inexperienced MCC side who were well beaten by Australia in 1950-51. Warr's two caps came on that trip but he was ineffective in either match. In 1956 he passed 100 wickets for the first time (116 at 18.17), and between 1958 and 1960 he captained a poor Middlesex side. He retired at the end of 1960 to concentrate on his career in the City. He went on to become a trustee of the MCC and president in 1987-88 as well as a member of the Jockey Club and a steward at Goodwood.
