David Evans-Bevan, whose family owned the Vale of Neath and Swansea Valley Breweries, appeared for Glamorgan during their final inter-county match as a Minor County against Carmarthenshire at Swansea in 1920. He had a decent recent as a batter in schools cricket for Uppingham as well as for Neath in club cricket, but only made four in what proved to be his one and only appearance for Glamorgan.
He subsequently enjoyed an illustrious business career, serving as a Director of the Phoenix Assurance Company and Barclays Bank from 1938 until 1972. During this time, he also acted as a Patron of Glamorgan CCC from 1951, besides serving as a borough councilor and President of Neath RFC. He also served a High Sherrif of Breconshire in 1929/30 as well as Glamorgan in 1951/52, before being created the First Baronet of Cadoxton-juxta-Neath in 1958.
