Profile

Stan Trick had a prolific record as a spin bowler in the South Wales Cricket Association either side of the Second World War and, on his few appearances for Glamorgan between 1946 and 1950, he proved to be a match winning left-arm spinner. Glamorgan must have wished that Trick had been available more often, but his family ran a highly successful motor business in the Neath area, and he opted only to play for the Welsh county on an occasional basis. He was also a fine footballer in his youth, winning schoolboy caps for Wales, and was even offered professional terms by Brentwood. But once again, he opted to stay in the Neath area,and work at his family's garage.
