Profile

Dick Duckfield was a right-handed batsman from Maesteg who scored an "excellent" - Wisden's word - century for the Players against the Gentlemen at The Oval in 1934, reaching 106 in only two hours, against a substandard attack. On the same ground two years later he scored 280 not out against Surrey, the highest score then made for Glamorgan. Otherwise, his form was ordinary; he retired in 1938 having scored exactly 7,000 runs, average 26.61.
