Charles Farr, a member of the Swansea club, was another to make one appearance for Glamorgan, as a late replacement in their side which met Monmouthshire in 1892 at St. Helen’s.
The chartered accountant made 2 in his sole innings, and despite never being chosen again for county level, he remained a consistent performer in club cricket for the Swansea club. He was the younger brother of Willie Farr, who played rugby for Swansea with great distinction from 1875/76 until 1881/82, besides serving on the club’s committee for many years and acting as their Treasurer.
Charles followed in his brother’s footsteps by playing rugby for Swansea between 1882/83 and 1883/84.
