J. Trevil Morgan entered cricket history in 1929 by becoming the first Welshman to score a century in the Varsity Match. He was a member of the famous family who owned and managed the famous department stores in Cardiff. Morgan duly put his business commitments in the Welsh capital ahead of playing county cricket. There is no denying that Morgan could have secured a regular place in Glamorgan`s 1st XI either side of the Second World War, but he opted instead the lead the county`s 2nd XI who played in the Minor County Championship from 1935 until 1950. Under his astute captaincy, a host of young players flourished before going on to even better things in first-class cricket.
Morgan was a left-handed batsman and right arm medium pace bowler, who also kept wicket on several occasions for the county. He had made his Glamorgan debut in 1925, before winning a Blue at Cambridge in 1928, 1929 and 1930. In 1929 he hit a composed century for Glamorgan against the South African tourists, and in 1930 Morgan successfully led the Cambridge side in the Varsity match.
