Profile

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.
