Tom Bevan is the son of Huw Bevan, the former strength and conditioning coach with the England cricket team, as well as the USA rugby side and various Welsh teams. Born in Cardiff and educated at Millfield School, he played for the Glamorgan Colts in 2016 before the following year making his Glamorgan 2nd XI debut whilst being a member of the Welsh county’s Academy.
The right-handed batter and off-spin bowler played initially for Cardiff CC and made his debut in Minor Counties cricket for Wales in 2017. He subsequently switched allegiance to St. Fagans CC and, whilst studying at Cardiff Met, he made his debut for the student team in 2019.
Having been a consistent run-scorer at club and Minor County level, Tom’s breakthrough moment in professional cricket came during mid-June 2022 when he broke the Club record for the highest-ever individual score in T20 cricket during the semi-final of the Second Eleven T20 competition against Middlesex 2nd XI at Arundel Castle, scoring 132 from just 69 balls, with his record-breaking innings containing 10 fours and 9 sixes. His efforts helped Glamorgan win the semi-final en route to defeating Leicestershire in the final.
After agreeing a summer contract, Tom scored a century in Glamorgan’s victory over Somerset in the Second Eleven Championship match at Abergavenny as well as the game against Northants at Milton Keynes before making his 1st XI debut at Chelmsford in the match with the Essex Eagles.
