TEAMS

Alan Wilkins was a member of the Glamorgan side which played in the 1977 Gillette Cup Final against Middlesex at Lord`s. His lively left-arm seam bowling also played a key role in Glamorgan`s progress to their first final of a one-day competition at Lord`s. In the quarter-final against Surrey, he returned figures of 12-3-33-2, whilst in the semi-final against Leicestershire at Swansea, his figures were 12-5-34-2. 1977 also proved to be his most productive season in first-class cricket for Glamorgan, with Wilkins taking 47 wickets, including five wicket hauls against Hampshire at Portsmouth and Worcestershire at New Road.

At the end of the 1979 season Wilkins moved across the Severn Estuary to join Gloucestershire. He made his debut for them in 1980, and took a career best 8/57 against Lancashire at Old Trafford in 1981. Wilkins spent much of 1982 on the sidelines, before returning to Glamorgan in 1983. He added a further 12 first-class wickets to his tally, and then retired from county cricket and emigrated to South Africa to start a new career in broadcasting. He returned to Wales in 1989 and has subsequently become a familiar face and voice on television
