Robin Martin-Jenkins: A man gloriously out of time


The Old Batsman blog pays tribute to the Sussex allrounder Robin Martin-Jenkins, who has retired to pursue his new career as a Geography and RS teacher at Hurstpierpoint College.

RM-J was a name like no other, not just because of the famous - and rightly proud - father, but with its feel for the amateur days of decades past. There was something of the curate about him, and the Sussex faithful would sometimes serenade him with a chorus of 'RM-J my Lord' as he bustled in with his quicker-than-you-think medium pacers.
