Dai Preece


Name Dai Preece
Debut 1804
Football West Bromwich Albion
Fascinating fact Passed his O-Levels Maths.

The patriarch of the Walsall Health Cricket Club ‘Taffia’, Dai is also the club’s official scorer and – all joking aside (and there’s plenty of it) – does a magnificent job, although nobody is saying he’s Rachel Riley or anything.

Is constantly threatening to dust down his W G Grace-era kit and see if he can roll back the years, and one day may actually do it.

Is famed at cricket grounds across the West Midlands for his legendary jacket that has a magnificent goldfish pattern in the lining. It really is a thing of beauty.
