Carlton Baugh, ('00) the reserve wicketkeeper in the West Indian squad, who has already played three Tests, is the sixth West Indian wicketkeeper to come from Wolmer's School in Kingston. There has never been any nurturing like it.

The first Wolmer's wicketkeeper was the first West Indian Test captain, Karl Nunes ('12) The second was the first West Indian to score a Test hundred in England, Ivan Barrow ('29). Third was Gerry Alexander ('46), the wicketkeeper-captain who sent Gilchrist home from Asia and out of international cricket forever.

Fourth was Jackie Hendricks ('51), later a big administrator. Fifth was the best of them, the brilliant wicketkeeper-batsman Jeff Dujon ('75). When Dujon retired in the early Nineties, a Wolmer's School wicketkeeper had kept wicket in almost one half of all West Indies Tests.

Wolmer's has produced only one other cricketer of real note, the opening batsman Allan Rae ('40). So the theory is that the old players, by staying in touch with the school and watching the youngsters play, have influenced the best of them to keep the sequence of wicketkeepers going. Until now, that is, when Baugh, of his own accord, decided to give up legbreak bowling in favour of keeping as it suited his stature better.

I have often reminisced about another potential West Indies wicket keeper from Wolmer's:  Dr. Clive Wynter. He would have followed Jackie into the Jamaica side because he was about eight years Jackie's junior and was an excellent wicket keeper batsman. He opened for Wolmer's and All Schools, and those who saw him will tell you he had the same potential as either Jackie or Jeffrey Dujon for wicket keeping and may have been as good a batsman as Dujon. In the late 1950's there was little opportunity for professional cricket and he opted to go to the USA and pursue his studies eventually gaining a PhD in Chemistry and a Professorship.
