Alun Evans Bio

Alun Wyn Evans, born in the picturesque Amman Valley in August 1975, is a renowned cricket player hailing from England. With a childhood spent in the charming town of Fishguard in Pembrokeshire, Evans quickly made a name for himself with his free-scoring strokeplay that caught the attention of Glamorgan’s talent scouts. It was no surprise that the young prodigy was sent to the prestigious Lord’s groundstaff to further his cricketing education.

During his time at Lord’s, Evans had the opportunity to showcase his skills while playing for both the M.C.C. Young Cricketers and Middlesex Seconds. However, his heart remained in South Wales, and he returned home in 1996. His promotion onto Glamorgan’s fulltime staff was celebrated with a remarkable performance in Second Eleven cricket, where he notched up three centuries within the first month. This outstanding display of talent also earned him a long-awaited first-class debut against Oxford University in June of the same year, during which he crafted an elegant unbeaten 66.

Evans continued to impress in his debut year, appearing in six more games. The following year, he only played in one Championship match but continued to dominate in second team cricket. It wasn’t until the retirement of Hugh Morris in 1997 that Evans got the opportunity to cement his place as the regular opening batsman for Glamorgan in the 1998 season. Unfortunately, a stress fracture in his shin hindered his progress. However, he made a triumphant return to the game in 1999 after recovering from the injury and marked the occasion with his maiden one-day century.

Despite his successes, Evans faced tough competition in the form of Australian openers Matthew Elliott and Jimmy Maher, who joined Glamorgan in 2000 and 2001 respectively. This restricted Evans’ opportunities in the first XI, and he was eventually released from the team at the end of the 2002 season.

Throughout his career, Alun Wyn Evans’ elegant strokeplay and ability to accumulate runs consistently made him a force to be reckoned with. His contribution to Glamorgan cricket remains significant, and his memorable performances continue to be cherished by fans and critics alike. Evans’ dedication and love for the game are evident through his journey, characterised by highs and lows, but always driven by the pursuit of sporting excellence.
