Cricket mourns McConnon
England v Pakistan 1954
McConnon played two Tests in the 1954 Pakistan series
Former Glamorgan and England off-spinner Jim McConnon has died at the age of 80.

McConnon won two Test caps for England in the 1954 series against Pakistan, taking three for 19 in his debut at Old Trafford.

He went on the Ashes tour to Australia in 1954-55, but a series of injuries denied him the chance to challenge for a Test place and he eventually returned home early with a broken finger.

McConnon, who was born in Burnopfield, County Durham, did not play for Glamorgan until he was 28, having previously enjoyed a first-class football career that included a stint with Aston Villa.

He claimed 819 first-class wickets during his career at a cost of only 19.88 each.
