Ken Lewis was a brisk right arm seam bowler who had taken 10-21 for the Royal Artillery in a match against Charterhouse, and his success in Services cricket meant that when Lewis completed his National Service he had trials with Worcestershire and Glamorgan.
In 1950 he joined Glamorgan`s staff, and soon showed in 2nd XI games and in club cricket that he could bowl genuinely fast. He produced some useful spells, including 4/25 against Kent at the Arms Park in 1953, but was handicapped by a series of niggling injuries and was unable to play on a regular basis. Indeed, a serious leg injury in 1956 resulted in Lewis being forced into retirement from first-class cricket.
