The Player From 'Ponty' is the biography of Glamorgan cricketer Bernard Hedges, the talented sportsman from the valleys of south Wales who played rugby for Pontypridd and Swansea, represented a Great Britain side at football and became a widely respected cricketer with Glamorgan between 1950 and 1967, who:

Scored 17, 773 first-class runs - Glamorgan's 7th all-time top run scorer.
Hit Glamorgan's first one-day century, v Somerset in the Gillette Cup in 1963.
Was one of only six Glamorgan players to score 2,000 runs in a season (2,026 in 1961).

Bernard's journey from his early days in Rhydyfelin - the eldest of eight children raised in a small council house - to the local grammar school, his National Service days, and to his professional career with Glamorgan is lovingly revealed by his son Stephen, who tells the story of the sporting life of a man who epitomised the 'unsung hero' by showing great grit and determination to make the most of the sporting talent he had.
