Profile

William Roller, vice president of the Club, who played for Surrey in their great days of the eighties when they won the Championship six years running, died at his London home on August 27, at the age of 91. He was one of the finest all-round cricketers who, going to Cambridge, was never tried for the University. A high-class batsman, free in method and having many strokes at his command, he also possessed considerable skill as a medium pace bowler with a high delivery. Born at Clapham on February 1, 1858, he was educated at Westminster and in that eleven in 1873 had the only double figure average.
