Profile

Wisden Obituary
Roly Vaughton, a widely known figure in Adelaide sporting and hotel circles, died three on January 5, aged 64. While still at school, Vaughton played first-grade cricket and football and South Australian wicketkeeper on a number of occasions between the eras of the late CW Walker and the advent of GRA Langley. He was also a top-grade baseball catcher and, as state coach, directed South Australia to successive wins in three inter-state series. A warm-hearted mine host of the well-known King's Head Hotel, Roly typically provided a handsome donation to the Shield players' sponsor fund on the last visit he made to the Adelaide Oval.
