Frank Meggitt was a talented all-round sportsman in the 1920`s, winning a hockey Blue at Cambridge, representing Wales at hockey, and playing once for Glamorgan during 1923.

Educated at Mill Hill School and Emmanuel College, Cambridge, his sole first-class appearance for Glamorgan came against Nottinghamshire at Swansea. The son of a timber importer, Liberal councilor and former mayor of  Barry, Frank had a good record with Barry Athletic CC and answered an SOS from the Glamorgan selectors when they found themselves without Norman Riches and Tom Whittington for the visit of Nottinghamshire. Frank made 0 and 4 as Glamorgan lost by an innings and 108 runs, and the amateur was not called up again.

In later life, Frank became a useful golfer, captaining the Radyr club, besides featuring in the Glamorgan Amateur Championships.
