David Brown, the former Gloucestershire all-rounder, played for Glamorgan during 2010 and 2011, and in the latter season, he captained the Club’s 2nd XI to the final of the Second Eleven Championship competition.
Educated in Blackburn and subsequently Durham University, David represented the university team between 2003 and 2005, besides appearances for the British Universities team, as well as in 2nd XI cricket during that period for Lancashire, Middlesex, Hampshire and Gloucestershire. The assertive batsman and medium-pace bowler subsequently joined the West Country side on leaving Durham and spent the next four years on their staff.
He was signed by Glamorgan in 2010 largely as a one-day player and someone who could make an impact in T20 cricket, but on his sole first-class appearance that summer he made a composed 99 against the West Indies A team at Sophia Gardens. He re-appeared in white-ball games the following summer besides successfully leading Glamorgan’s 2nd XI. In that capacity he was in charge in the Championship final at Coventry where the Welsh county lost to Warwickshire 2nd XI.
During his time in South Wales, David played for Cardiff CC and Mumbles CC, before retiring from professional cricket at the end of the 2011 season. His brother Michael also played for Middlesex, Hampshire and Surrey.
