Profile

Robin Udal, who died on the way from London to his home at Tunbridge Wells on February 27, aged 80, played as a fast bowler for Oxford in 1905 and 1906. He was in the Winchester XI in 1901 and 1902, heading the school bowling averages in the second year. Though twice on the losing side against Cambridge, he distinguished himself on each occasion. In the first match he took five wickets for 73 and in the second two for 54. Despite being punished by M. W. Payne for 34 in his opening two overs and handicapped by a strained side which prevented him from bowling at anything like his normal speed, he dismissed seven men for 133 runs and three for 73. He was also a useful batsman. Udal entered the Sudan Civil Service in 1906 and, upon returning to England in 1930, served in turn as secretary and bursar to Clifton College and secretary of the Athenaeum Club.
