Winston Shawn Gillies (born 15 April 1981, Mandeville, Jamaica) is a Jamaican born, Australian cricketer who has played first class matches for Western Warriors. His first match was a warm-up match against South Africa during their 2005–06 tour of Australia, where Gillies had two wickets in his very first over, and a report from Cricket Australia later described his bowling as "continually troubling the batsmen".[1] Gillies ended with three wickets for 58, and 20 runs, as the Warriors beat the South African national team by an innings and 48 runs.[2]

Throughout the 2006-07 domestic season he struggled to break into the Warriors team, battling with several other players for the all-rounder spot. He played only one Pura Cup game that season and two one-day games. The following season he played in only two one-day games and was not rewarded with a contract for the 2008-2009 season.
