Bill Davies, who played five times for Glamorgan during the 1920s had a good record as a professional with both Briton Ferry Steel CC and Cardiff CC.

He was a lively seam bowler, and hard-hitting batsman, and if Glamorgan had been in a better position financially, it is likely that Bill would have played on a more frequent basis in the County Championship. A measure of his abilities with the ball can be gauged from the fact that in 1926 he claimed 70 wickets for Cardiff CC, just four short of the Club’s record set by Jack Nash in 1910. Whilst attached to the city club, Bill also acted as assistant groundsman at the Arms Park.
