Alf Shea was a stalwart with Briton Ferry Town CC with the all-rounder playing twice for Glamorgan during 1928.
However, Alf met with little success in his Championship appearances and had few opportunities to display his talents with the bat. Indeed, during 1928 Alf scored a century against Swansea CC in the space of just 45 minutes, hitting 8 massive sixes and 13 fours.
After retiring from playing, Alf coached at the Briton Ferry club and gleefully passed on tips to the next generation including his nephew Dennis who played for Glamorgan after the Second World War.
