Profile

Bert Robinson, who died in July 2009 aged 92, was a brisk medium-pacer who played on and off for Northamptonshire either side of the Second World War. He will be best remembered, however, as the long-serving cricket coach at Radley College in Oxfordshire. His official role stretched from 1949, when Ted Dexter was one of his early charges, to his retirement in 1982, but - encouraged by the college warden and future chairman of the TCCB, Dennis Silk - he retained an unofficial coaching role for nearly three decades thereafter, and was credited with shaping the development of such young talent as Jamie Dalrymple, Robin Martin-Jenkins, Ben Hutton, and Andrew Strauss. "You could see there was something a little bit better about him, but he didn't stand out all that much," Robinson said of Strauss in 2007. "He was one of those boys who responded well."
