David Mullens, who played twice for Glamorgan, had a decent record as a bowler in the Cardiff and District League.

He met with great success for Canton CC and Taff Vale CC, before joining Cardiff CC, with his move to the premier club and his continued success, leading to his selection against Worcestershire 2nd XI in 1896 and Berkshire in 1900. Both of these games were at the Arms Park, with the plumber unable to commit to travelling to away matches owing to pressure of work. Indeed, David had been chosen in 1894 to play in the match at Swindon against Wiltshire, but had to cry off the night before the game.

He had married Edith Chandler in Leatherhead in December 1883, with the couple having two sons and three daughters. He subsequently became a publican and ran the Cardiff Constitutional Club as well as the White Hart Hotel in Bitton, Gloucestershire. It was in this village, midway between Bristol and Bath, that he died during June 1935.


Born – Chippenham, Wiltshire, July 1861.

Died – Bitton, Gloucestershire, 20 June 1935.
