Lenard Winston Hill (14 April 1941 – 12 April 2007) was a Welsh sportsman, who played first-class cricket for Glamorgan, league football for Swansea Town and Newport County and was also a talented tennis player.
Early sporting career
Hill joined Glamorgan County Cricket Club in 1964, but his football career took precedence, preventing him from playing a full county cricket season until the mid-1970s. His first class debut came on 18 July 1964 against Lancashire. He scored just one run on his debut, falling lbw to Brian Statham.
He later became a regular right-hand batsman in the Glamorgan first XI, and was awarded a county cap in 1974. He made 76 first-class appearances for Glamorgan and scored 2,690 runs (including 14 fifties), with a top score of 96 not out against Gloucestershire in 1974. In the same year, he scored 90 not out against Hampshire in one of the year's most notable Glamorgan victories. He played his last game for Glamorgan in 1976.
A brief spell as professional at Ammanford Cricket Club completed his career.
Recognition of qualities
In 1975, he was featured in an article by Basil Easterbrook entitled "The Willing Workhorses of First Class Cricket"
A popular player, in retirement he kept in touch with his ex-colleagues through the Glamorgan Ex-Players' Association.
Hill died in April 2007, aged 65.
