Profile

All cricket, certainly the British county scene and, above all, the Welsh game, are much the poorer for the retirement of Alan Jones. Glamorgan's major batsman for more than 20 years, he scored more runs and more centuries, made a thousand in a season more often, than any other player in the county's history, and shared in the record stand for any wicket. He was also the ideal senior pro, recalling the great holders of that office in a more idealistic day than this.
