Bert Robinson who played once for Glamorgan in 1945 is best known in the cricket world for having been cricket professional and coach at Radley College in Berkshire from 1949 until 2006.
During his time at the famous Berkshire school, the former Northamptonshire professional coached the likes of Ted Dexter, Andrew Strauss and Jamie Dalrymple during their formative years.
In 1945 he played for Glamorgan against Sir Learie Constantine’s XI at Barry Island with his selection stemming from the fact that the brisk seamer who had played for Northamptonshire since 1937 was serving with the Royal Air Force and stationed at the St. Athan’s airbase. He made his 24th and final appearance in first-class cricket for the East Midlands county during 1946, before appearing in Minor County cricket for Cambridgeshire between 1948 and 1949 whilst attached to Wisbech CC, as well as for Berkshire 1951 until 1955, during which time he mixed playing for the county with his duties as the professional at Radley College.
