Robin Johns

As a St Albans School boy he developed through the Radlett colts as an all-rounder, bowling leg-cutters or off-spin in the first team before leaving after the 1968 season aged 22 to join Southgate. He won an Oxford Blue in 1970 and played six games for Northamptonshire as an off-spinner in 1971.

He represented Herts regularly from 1975 onwards in a successful era. In 1976 he featured in a spin partnership with Dilip Doshi, the future India left-armer, when Herts defeated Essex at Hitchin in the old Gillette Cup, the only occasion a minor county has reached the quarter-finals.
