James, David Harry, died in Margam on February 22, 2002, aged 80. While on the Glamorgan groundstaff in their Championship-winning season of 1948, he was drafted in to strengthen the seam bowling on an easy-paced pitch at Trent Bridge. He was not called on in Nottinghamshire's first innings, but his 17 runs helped extend Glamorgan's lead. Charlie Harris then saved the home side with a five-hour century; James caught and bowled him just before a thunderstorm put paid to further play. His one wicket in 24 overs cost 59 runs. However, he was the Second Eleven's leading wicket-taker in the Minor Counties Championship that year, with 26. This apart, his all-round skills were best appreciated in club cricket by Briton Ferry Town and Briton Ferry Steel.
