Robert Colley is one of a handful of players to have the dubious distinction of failing to score in their only innings for Glamorgan. In his case, Robert also went wicketless when he was given a chance to bowl. The Bristol-born builder was chosen in the Glamorgan team for the match against Surrey 2nd XI at The Oval in 1899. The all-rounder though failed to take a wicket, or score a run, despite a good record in club cricket for Cardiff.
Six years before, he had also featured in the trial match in 1893 at the Arms Park, when he was chosen for the Colts XXII which met the county side, scoring 10 and 6, but not taking a wicket.
