Ian Watson was a top-order batsman whose brief first-class career consisted of three matches for three counties, and no County Championship appearances. He was on the MCC groundstaff from 1965, during which time he played for Middlesex 2nd XI and once for the county proper. After a trial with Gloucestershire in 1970, he joined Northamptonshire for two seasons, and finished with a year at Hampshire.
