VAUGHAN WILLIAMS

For all the talk of a modern class less society, English village life still enjoys its social levels and Vaughan is the one member of the club who is able to move freely amongst them all.

A resident of Hailey, warden of Ipsden church and a batsman in the classical style, Vaughan made his debut in 1983, however a period living in Australia interrupted his ICC career and he wasnít to play again until 1989.

Since that time Vaughan has never managed more than five games in a season for the club mainly due to career in precious metals and stones that regularly took him to some of the remoter diamond mines of the world.

Now with business interests in coal mining, he seems to spend his time socialising, organising Real Tennis tournaments and playing the gentleman farmer, but found time in 2008 to finally record his 50th appearance.

Vaughan served as Vice Chairman (1991-2007) and was elevated to President in 2008, a fitting tribute for someone who has been so generous to the club down the years.

As previously mentioned his batting shows glimpses of a timeless grace but this is in stark contrast to his conduct as a bowler. A slow right armer, he has picked up over sixty wickets down the years no doubt aided by his hair-drier approach to appealing that frankly would make many a football manager blush let alone the receiving umpire.

Vaughan has never toured so they are no embarrassing stories that I can reveal and Iím not sure I would anyway for fear of jeopardising the availability of Lordís test match tickets from our only MCC member.
