Profile

In 1949 Jim Pressdee became the club`s youngest player in post-war cricket by making his first-class debut for the county in 1949 against Nottinghamshire at Cardiff Arms Park aged 16 years and 59 days. He was also a talented schoolboy footballer, winning Welsh youth caps as well as playing for Swansea Town, but cricket was his favourite game, and Pressdee opted to be a professional cricketer.
