Aubrey Davies was a talented all-rounder during the 1930`s with the right-handed batsman and leg-spinner playing for Glamorgan between 1934 and 1938, before moving to Devon and appearing for their Minor County side after the Second World War.

Aubrey had made his for Glamorgan’s Club and Ground side during 1933 before joining the county’s professional staff and making his first-class debut against Leicestershire at Hinckley in 1934 as the Welsh county continued their policy of blooding local talent. Over the course of the next few seasons, he played some promising innings, although Aubrey only scored one half-century, against Surrey at The Oval in 1937, whilst his leg-spin bowling, whilst being effective at club level, saw him take 14 wickets at county level.

Aubrey left the Glamorgan staff at the end of the 1938 season and subsequently appeared in Minor County cricket for Devon.
