Reg Scarlett was a hard-hitting middle-order batsman and more than useful offspinner who was on the brink of selection for several seasons before making his Test debut against England at Bridgetown in 1959-60. Although he failed, he immediately hammered 139 for Jamaica against the tourists and retained his place for the next two Tests but failed to make any impression. At the end of that season he moved to England where he coached for 15 years and played minor league cricket. In 1975 he returned to Jamaica to oversee youth development for the board, but came back to London in 1979 to put all his energies into grass-roots cricket there. He was the brains behind the Haringey Cricket College which produced several county cricketers. He subsequently became the West Indies Cricket Board's director of coaching.
