The David Winterbottom Memorial Trophy

D.J. (David) Winterbottom (C 1959) was an incisive bowler, who never gave runs away easily, but by his own admission, he was a modest batsman and fielder. He only had one season in the School XI, but his record for the Lynxes is quite remarkable. David had one of the Club’s all time best bowling performances against the Old Suttonians in 1966 with the analysis of 17.9 overs 9 maidens 9 wickets for 26 runs. His overall record is as follows:

 

1047 Overs (281 maidens)

187 wickets for 2702 runs (5 wickets or more 11 times)

Average 14.45

 

47 Innings (12 not out)

216 runs  (top score 46)

Average 6.17

 

David was Honorary Secretary of the Lynxes between 1966 and 1974.

 

He sadly committed suicide in1992. The Lynxes made a donation to the McMillan Cancer Relief Fund and in acknowledging this, his wife, Kaye, wrote “David would have been glad to know he was remembered by fellow Lynxes. The weeks he spent at Cranbrook in August were some of his happiest times and cricket was probably his greatest love”.

 

Following the wishes of his family, the Lynxes introduced a cup in his name to be awarded to the bowler taking the most wickets in the week.
