Tributes have been paid to former Glamorgan and England cricketer Peter Walker, who has died aged 84.
Arguably the greatest all-rounder in the county’s history, Walker scored 17,650 runs and claimed 834 wickets during a 16-year playing career.
Glamorgan chief executive Hugh Morris has led the tributes to the club legend calling him "a triple threat and a brilliant all-rounder" adding "we may never see another player quite like him."
Peter Walker was a part of Glamorgan’s 1969 County Championship-winning team and was capped by England, playing in three test matches against the 1961 South African tourists.
Peter Walker was born in Bristol but grew up in South Africa. As a schoolboy in Johannesburg, he was coached by Allan Watkins and other Glamorgan players, so after a couple of years as a merchant seaman he contacted his old coach and was given a trial at Cardiff Arms Park. After two years of summer contracts, he became a full time Glamorgan player in 1956.
Peter Walker retired as a cricketer at the end of the 1972 season and became a well known broadcaster, covering sport for BBC Wales and anchoring the television coverage of Sunday League cricket. He was one of the founders of Merlin Television, which became the largest independent television production company in Wales.
He later returned to cricket, overseeing the introduction of a nationwide coaching framework across Wales and the development of the National Cricket Centre at Glamorgan's headquarters at Sophia Gardens. He served as President of Glamorgan and in 2011 was awarded an MBE in for services to cricket.
