Profile

William Bates played for his native Yorkshire, between 1907 and 1913 before joining Briton Ferry Steel C.C. in 1914 and qualifying for Glamorgan. Bates duly won a regular place in their team and became a most reliable opening batsman. In 1923 he scored a thousand runs for the season, without scoring a century, whilst in 1927 he became the first Glamorgan batsman to record a century in each innings, with 105 and 111 against Essex.
