Raymond Thomas Albert Windsor (born 9 February 1943) played first-class and List A cricket for Somerset in 1969.[1] He was born at Wellington, Somerset.

Windsor was a right-handed batsman and occasional bowler who made a lot of runs in club cricket for Wellington and Taunton.[2] In August 1969, playing for Somerset's second eleven in a Minor Counties Championship match against Cornwall he hit 140 out of 225 in Somerset's first innings.[3] That earned him a fairly instant call-up into Somerset's first team for a List A Sunday League match against Yorkshire, but Somerset won easily by nine wickets, and he was not required to bat or to bowl.[4] Later in the same month, he was picked for a single County Championship match against Sussex; he batted at No 7 and was out, bowled by Tony Greig, without scoring in the first innings, and the second Somerset innings finished at 220 for four wickets, so he did not bat a second time.[5] He was not picked for the first team again, though he continued to appear in sporadic second eleven games to 1978.
