Profile

James Edward McConnon was a tall and thoughtful Geordie who found his way into the Glamorgan cricket dressing-room as he was completing a professional football career with Lovells Athletic near Newport, having played wartime friendlies in 1944-45 for Aston Villa. He brought with him a knee injury, but that did not stop him bowling fast for Newport during the summer and attracting the attention of the county.
