Paul Todd played for Glamorgan during the late 1980s, with his signing following a hundred against the Welsh county in a Benson and Hedges Cup match for the Minor Counties.
Paul had been on Nottinghamshire`s staff for eleven years, during which time he scored over 7,000 runs, and hit eight centuries, including a career-best 178 against Gloucestershire at Trent Bridge. Sadly, the right-handed opener had to give up professional cricket in 1982 owing to a family illness.
He returned to club cricket and from 1985 Paul played for Staffordshire besides appearing for the Minor Counties. It was in this guise that he struck a belligerent 107 against Glamorgan for the Minor Counties in the Benson and Hedges competition during 1987. With Alan Butcher on the sidelines with injury, Paul joined Glamorgan for the rest of the year, as well as the summer after, but only in limited over matches.
Paul duly appeared in 14 first-class matches during 1987, and added to his career tally of hundreds by scoring 135 against Worcestershire at New Road.
