Umpire dies in cricket accident
A cricket umpire has died after being hit on the head by the ball during a match.
Alcwyn Jenkins, 70, was umpiring a league match between Swansea and Llangennech at the St Helen's ground in Swansea on Saturday.
Neil Hobbs, honorary chairman of the South Wales Cricket Association, said it was a tragic accident.
He said Mr Jenkins would be sorely missed by the cricket community in south Wales.
"I've umpired with Alcwyn - great guy. He was well respected throughout the league and everybody knew Alcwyn," said Mr Hobbs.
"He's umpired for the best part of 25 years. He also does junior league matches.
"Everybody probably in south Wales knows Alcwyn through cricket. It's a very very sad day and I feel sorry for his children."
A spokesperson for Morriston Hospital in Swansea said the injuries were consistent with being hit on the head with a cricket ball.
