Profile

`Jock` Tait almost became Glamorgan`s first-ever centurion in the County Championship as he scored 96 against Sussex in the county`s inaugural first-class match in 1921. This was also his first-class debut, and had he achieved this feat on his first Championship appearance, it would have added to his already impressive list of sporting achievements. Born in the Shetland Islands in November 1886, Tait had previously played cricket and rugby for Swansea, football for Cardiff Corinthians and Newport County, and had won a Welsh Amateur Football cap against England at Llandudno in 1913.
