Arthur David, a talented wicket-keeper, played once for Glamorgan in 1913.
The son of Rev. Thomas David of Llanddewi Vicarage in Narberth, Arthur was a cousin of Edmund David, the Club’s first-ever captain. Educated in Derbyshire at Repton School, Arthur moved to South Wales during the early 1910s and secured a place as wicket-keeper in the Cardiff 1st XI. Some impressive performances behind the stumps led to his call-up by the Glamorgan selectors in 1913 for the away match with Monmouthshire at Newport. He made three runs, besides taking one catch and completing a smart stumping.
After the Great War, Arthur moved to Sussex and became a master at Cottesmore School, a prep school near Pease Pottage in Crawley, West Sussex. Tragically, it appears that he took his life in May 1952 as his body was found on the beach at Hove.
