Ieuan Williams was a 22-year old dental student at Liverpool University when he played twice for the cash-strapped Glamorgan during 1931 as the Welsh county’s selectors bloodied a number of young and homegrown amateurs rather than spending what little cash they had on aged professionals from England.
The student had impressed in club cricket in his native Carmarthenshire as well as at Liverpool University, and after impressing Maurice Turnbull in a Colts Trial, Ieuan was called up for the matches against Gloucestershire at Cheltenham College, as well as Nottinghamshire at Swansea. He met with little success and was not called up again.
After qualifying as a dentist in 1935 he worked in practices in his native Glanamman, as well as in Bridgend, Chester, London and Poole.
