Profile

Clayton Robson, who died on February 26, 1989, aged 87, captained Malvern in 1920, the last of his four years in the XI, and later captained Sandhurst. A stylish batsman with a classical approach to strokemaking, he had two games for Worcestershire in 1921, and then in 1926 four for Middlesex, but he never really reproduced the batting of his schooldays and his first-class record was just 136 runs at 15.11. His 46 against Hampshire on debut remained his highest innings. Robson was also a rackets player of distinction.
