Ernie Harris was a stalwart of the St.Fagan`s club and played for them between the mid-1930`s until the mid-1980`s.
In his youth, he was a brisk medium pace bowler, and forceful right-handed batsman. In 1938 he was called up to play for Glamorgan against Kent at Maidstone after impressing Maurice Turnbull and Johnnie Clay playing in club cricket. He continued to make sporadic appearances either side of the Second World War, before concentrating on his job in the administrative section of University College, Cardiff, where he eventually became Registrar.
Harris served for a while on the Glamorgan committee and was Match Manager at Swansea when the St.Helen`s ground hosted the One Day International between England and New Zealand in 1973.
