Owen Morgan enjoyed a fine start to his county career with the left-arm spinner and dogged right-handed batter becoming only the second night-watchman to score a hundred for the Welsh county as he posted his maiden hundred at New Road during 2016.
Having arrived at the crease shortly before the close of the third day’s play against Worcestershire, Owen remained in the middle throughout the next day and reached his century, besides winning the game, with a sweetly-timed cover drive.
Owen progressed from Llangennech CC into various Glamorgan age-group teams plus their 2nd XI, as well as a place in Cardiff MCCU team for whom he made his first-class debut during April 2014 against Gloucestershire at Bristol.
He subsequently had limited opportunities in Glamorgan’s 1st XI but had enjoyed success with both bat and ball in 2nd XI cricket, as well as for Pontarddulais CC in the South Wales Premier League. He was released form the Glamorgan staff at the end of the 2020 season.
