Trevor Every played for Glamorgan from 1929 until 1934, before deteriorating eyesight forced him into premature retirement. Born in Llanelli, he showed rich promise keeping wicket for the town club, and with Glamorgan eager to sign up promising locally-born players, he joined the county`s staff on leaving school in 1928. The following year, he made his Championship debut against Yorkshire at the Arms Park, and soon established himself as one of the best young wicket-keepers on the county circuit.
Every also developed into a gritty lower middle order batsman, and made 116 against Worcestershire in 1932, and many
people were forecasting a bright future for the young keeper. Tragically, in 1934 Every suffered eye problems in
the pre-season practices, and in the opening game of the season, he found it difficult to pick up the flight of the ball.
Midway through the game, he was taken to consult an eye specialist, who told Trevor the devastating news that he was going
blind. Every never played another game for Glamorgan, and the scorebook for the second innings of the match simply records
Trevor as being `absent ill`. (Submitted by Andrew Hignell - April 2000)
