Ian Morris was a right-handed batter and left-arm spinner who was on Glamorgan`s staff for three years during the late 1960`s.
The all-rounder first played for the county’s 2nd XI at the age of sixteen following some decent performances for Maesteg Celtic CC. He then spent two years on the MCC groundstaff at Lord’s, and with the departure of fellow left-arm spinner Jim Pressdee at the end of the 1965 season, Ian joined the county’s staff in 1966.
He subsequently made his first-class debut later that summer against Hampshire at the Arms Park, but had few opportunities in the 1st XI during 1966 and 1967 with the likes of Don Shepherd and Peter Walker in outstanding form. However, Ian has an extended run of nine Championship games during May and June 1968, but during this time he only scored 158 runs and claimed just three wickets.
After being released from Glamorgan`s staff at the end of 1968, Ian returned to play for, and coach, Maesteg Celtic CC besides playing for Wales and the South Wales Cricket Association’s representative team.
Born – Maesteg, 27 June 1946.
