Harry Peters enjoyed a fine career as a batsman in club cricket in the Swansea area and was a member of the Swansea Central League team which defeated a Glamorgan Club and Ground side at St. Helen’s in July 1945. Opening the batting, he made 7 being dismissed for 7 by Closs Jones. His side ended up on 31 before dismissing the county’s scratch side, led by Cyril Smart, for just 25 to win an extraordinary game by six runs.
He appeared in four wartime games in 1944 and 1945, with his debut coming against the National Fire Service in August 1944 in a one-day game on his home turf at the St.Helen’s ground. Harry was a wagon repairer by trade and was employed at the Great Western Railway’s depot at Landore to the east of his native town.
