Welsh dual sport star Hill dies
Glamorgan
Former Glamorgan cricketer and Swansea Town and Newport County footballer Len Hill has died at the age of 65.

The Caerleon man was a wing-half with Newport 1962-73, though he had a brief spell with Swansea in the early 1970s.

The commitments meant the right-handed batsman never played a full season for Glamorgan until the mid 1970s, and he was awarded his county cap in 1974.

Hill, also a talented tennis player, made 76 first-class appearances for Glamorgan, scoring 2,690 runs.

His top score was an unbeaten 96 against Gloucestershire in 1974, the year when he had his most famous innings for Glamorgan.

Facing a fired-up Andy Roberts for Hampshire at Sophia Gardens, Hill's battling unbeaten 90 in the second innings helped secure an unlikely victory for the Welsh county.
