AUTHOR: Andrew Hignell
Glamorgan Cricketers 1889-1920
Glamorgan Cricketers 1889-1920
  • Description
  • Related

This lavishly illustrated book features the 240 men who played for the Welsh county between the Club’s formation in 1888 and their elevation into the County Championship in 1921.

It includes people such as Norman Riches and Tom Whittington who were pivotal figures in the bid for first-class status, as well as others such as Jack Brain who oversaw the development of the Club during the 1890s as they entered the Minor County Championship.

Due prominence is also given to other star players from these early years, including Harry Creber – the most successful bowler in the Minor County competition before the outbreak of the Great War.

It features other talented professionals plus the one-match wonders who played, with little effect for the Club, as it strove for higher recognition.

Others who gave their lives for King and Country during the War, and several of Glamorgan’s inaugural County Championship team in 1921 are also featured in a fascinating story of the medics, vicars, teachers, servicemen, accountants, solicitors, estate agents, and assorted businessmen who all freely gave their time to play alongside the hard-nosed professionals and helped establish Glamorgan as a fully-fledged county cricket team.

Andrew Hignell is the 1st XI Scorer and Archivist to Glamorgan County Cricket Club which is Wales’ sole representative in county cricket. He read Geography at Exeter University, before undertaking a Ph.D in the subject at Cardiff University and subsequently taught at schools in Devon, Somerset and South Wales, besides working for BBC Radio Wales on their coverage of Glamorgan cricket.

In 2004 Andrew took up his full-time post with Glamorgan and oversaw the creation of the CC4 Museum of Welsh Cricket at the Club’s headquarters in Cardiff. In 2014 the Museum won the Kieran Hegarty Memorial Prize for Innovation at the Celtic Media Festival, whilst in 2018 it became the first fully-accredited cricket museum in the UK. Andrew is the author of over 30 books on cricket and is acknowledged as the leading authority on the history of cricket in Wales.
