Maurice Robinson made his first-class debut in 1942/43 playing in domestic cricket in India whilst serving with the R.A.F.
After the Second World War, he was stationed at St.Athan and he made his Glamorgan debut in 1946. The Irish-born all-rounder won his county cap in his debut season, and in 1949 he scored a career-best 190 against Hampshire at Bournemouth whilst sharing what still stands as a club record fifth wicket partnership of 264 with Stan Montgomery.
He left the county`s staff in 1950 and joined Warwickshire for whom he played until 1952.
