Arthur Patterson

Arthur Patterson was a stalwart figure in club cricket in South-East Wales with the inter-schools competition in the Cardiff area being named in his memory.

The right-handed batter and off-spin bowler played twice for Glamorgan in their wartime friendlies, whilst in 1947 and 1948 he played for the county’s 2nd XI. His two appearances for Glamorgan’s 1st XI came in 1943 against the Anti-Aircraft Command and the Royal Air Force.

His duties with the Royal Navy restricted Arthur’s appearances in other wartime friendlies. After the War, he served as captain and secretary, besides being instrumental in forming the Welsh Club Cricket Conference in 1966.

He died in 1975 when, aged 64, he died during a cricket match at Barry.
