The John Wybourn Cup

H.J. (Henry John) Wybourn (CR 1951) was elected to the Lynxes in 1952 and was one of the club’s most loyal members. His playing career, principally as a bowler, was cut short by injury but he continued to be active in administrative roles for many years and he never failed to attend the week as a knowledgeable and enthusiastic supporter. Henry’s playing record for the Lynxes was as follows:


41 Innings (17 not out)

366 runs (1 score of 50 or over; top score 63*)

Average 15.25


176 Overs (41 maidens)

30 wickets for 498 runs (5 wickets or more once)

Average 16.60


In 2003 the Lynxes decided to introduce a cup in his name to mark his 50 years of attending Lynxes week. In the Lynxes match versus the School the Captain of the losing side presents the cup to the Captain of the winning side.
