Arthur Creber was the the son of Harry Creber – the long-serving Glamorgan professional and groundsman at St. Helen`s – and made one appearance for the Welsh county during 1929.

Whereas his father been a left-arm spinner, Arthur was a right-arm seam bowler and a hard-hitting batsman. His sole appearance for Glamorgan came against Leicestershire at Loughborough in 1929, but his bowling skills were not called upon as Glamorgan subsided to an innings defeat.

Arthur subsequently left South Wales to play as a professional with the Longsight club in Manchester before joining Ferguslie CC in 1935. He also played for Scotland as well as for Northern Command in their wartime friendlies.

After the War, Arthur became groundsman and professional at George Heriot’s School in Edinburgh before during the 1950s, returning to Wales having secured a similar post at Rydal School in Colwyn Bay.
