Hamish Anthony, a young West Indian all-rounder, joined Glamorgan for 1990 on the recommendation of fellow Antiguan Viv Richards. Hamish made his Glamorgan debut during their pre-season tour to Trinidad in 1989/90, and then appeared in two Championship games and four first-class friendlies for the Welsh county during 1990.
He was also on the fringe of the West Indian side at the time, and after some promising performances for the Leeward Islands and the West Indies Youth team, Hamish won selection in 1991 for the tour to England. Hamish`s selection in the West Indian tour party meant that Glamorgan opted for Ravi Shastri as their overseas player in 1991, before Viv Richards returned for 1992 and 1993.
Hamish subsequently played in League cricket in Northern England, before re-appearing for Glamorgan in 1995 and helping the Welsh county achieve some success in the NatWest Trophy, taking 4/25 in the quarter-final at Cardiff with Middlesex at Cardiff to help the county secure a semi-final berth against Warwickshire.
He continued to play for the Leeward Islands until 1996/97, during which time he twice represented the West Indies in the Hong Kong Sixes. Hamish also continued to play for Littleborough and Haslingden in Lancashire Leagues, and whilst in the UK in 1997, he also appeared for the MCC against Scotland. The all-rounder subsequently moved to the Virgin Islands and played for the United States in the ICC Trophy in 2005. The following year, Hamish also played for the Virgin Islands in the Stanford Twenty20 competition.
