David Mercer

A great article appeared in The Times just last week (see link below) regarding David Mercer. He played at our club in the 60′s and 70′s as a junior then later when practising as a solicitor in Swansea.
He also umpired locally and when players were asked to umpire at Langland – David regularly volunteered.
He began his career in broadcasting after winning a BBC Wales competition.
He was invited to speak at a dinner in the Brangwyn Hall having umpired at Wimbledon and commentated on so many matches.
