Brief profile of Jim Pleass
by Dr.A.K.Hignell

Player:JE Pleass

Jim Pleass was a talented right-handed batsman who after success for the Welsh Schools side and the Cardiff club, joined Glamorgan`s professional staff in 1948.


Pleass had previously played for the county as an amateur in 1947, and he subsequently developed into an aggressive middle-order batsman and a fine cover fielder. However, he only scored one century during his career that came against Yorkshire at Harrogate in 1955 as Glamorgan secured their first ever Championship win on Yorkshire soil.


Pleass left the county`s staff in 1956 and went into business in Cardiff. He has served on the county`s committee and is currently secretary of the Glamorgan Former Players Association.
