Christoper Winn (OK 1945) died August 27, 2017
Winn died peacefully on 27 August 2017, after a wonderful innings of 90. Reference to his rugby and cricket careers can be found via the espn website. His wife Val is 88 and was a renowned athlete, winning the 400 metres or 440 yards in the British Athletics Championships for 6 consecutive years from 1948 to 1953, the year they got married.
After county cricket with Sussex CCC, Chris played for Hampstead CC and was latterly President. He made an enormous contribution to cricketing bodies in Middlesex through the Middlesex CCC Centenary Youth Trust, the Middlesex Colts Association, the London Schools’ Cricket Project, Capital Kids Cricket and doubtless several others.
Chris was also a devotee of Real Tennis, winning the French Open Seniors doubles championship around 20 years ago, and of greyhound racing, in which for some time he appeared to be a less than successful part-owner! A reasonable claim to be one of KCS’s great all-round sportsmen, though he preferred not to dwell on his later schooldays.
