Lt. Donald Lindsay Morgan (born 5 November 1888 in Tientsin, China; died 22 January 1969 in Pasadena, California, United States) was an English cricketer who played two first-class matches for Gloucestershire in 1907. He attended Mill Hill School in London from 1902–07.[1] In his first-class match, against Somerset, he scored a single run in the first innings before being dismissed for a duck in his team's second innings of 37, one of five ducks in the innings.[2] He took five catches in the match, including four in the first innings. In his second match, against Middlesex, he scored 2 and 0, being dismissed in the second innings by Frank Tarrant, who took 9/41.[3] He took three catches in the match.
