Profile

Wisden Obituary
Wollocombe, Richard Henry, died in Bath on June 7, 2002, aged 76. He captained Wellington College in 1943 and, on going up to Oxford in 1949 after the Army and a brief spell in advertising, played four games for the University in 1951 and four more in 1952 as a leg-spinning all-rounder. He also played against them for the Free Foresters in 1951, scoring an unbeaten 38 in the second innings, though by then he was out of the running for a Blue. His glorious 119 in 125 minutes against Worcestershire suggested 1952 might be his year, but it wasn't to be. The final bowling place went to the 1951 Blue, Bill Mitchell. In his nine first-class games Wollocombe scored 314 runs at 22.42 and took ten wickets at 62.30 with his leg-breaks. He also played some Minor Counties cricket for Berkshire in 1950, and after university returned to the world of advertising.
