Euros Lewis, the former Sussex and Glamorgan cricketer, has died after a short illness at the age of 72.
Born in Llanelli in January, 1942, Euros began his career playing for Glamorgan between 1961 and 1966, during which time he appeared in 95 first-class matches, as well as half a dozen limited-overs matches.
The left-handed batsman and off-spin bowler made his Championship debut for the Welsh county in 1961, and initially it was his bold, free hitting as an opening batsman that secured Lewis a regular place in the side.
In 1966 he left Glamorgan to join Sussex and played at Hove until 1969, representing the county in 86 first-class matches, taking 188 wickets and scoring 1318 runs, including a best of 7 for 66. He then returned to South Wales and continued to enjoy success in club cricket with Dafen Welfare CC. He shares a unique claim with former Sussex batsman Tony Cottey, as they are the only two players to have played for Sussex, Glamorgan and Dafen Welfare.
Everyone at Sussex is saddened to hear of the passing of Euros and our condolences go to his family and many friends.
