Yr oedd criced cystadleuol wedi bod yn boblogaidd yn y sir ers degawdau. Dyma gyhoeddiad o Awst 1895 / Competetive cricket had been popular in the county for decades. Here is a notice from August 1895.

Can anyone identify the members of this Council School Cricket team? The only person who can be identified is the headmaster Mr O.D Jones, standing on the far RHS.

A all unrhyw un enwi aelodau tîm Criced Ysgol y Cyngor fan hyn? Yr unig berson y gellir ei adnabod yw y prifathro Mr O.D Jones, yn sefyll ar yr dde.

One pupil has now been named – Dewi Evans, standing next to Mr Jones – thanks to Gaynor on the other side of the world!!!

Mae un disgybl bellach wedi ei enwi – Dewi Evans, sy’n sefyll wrth ymyl Mr Jones – diolch i Gaynor, sy’n byw pendraw’r byd!!!

  • Thank you ! Earlier than we thought but the date was based on the appearance of O.D.Jones who looks quite a bit older than in other photos – must have been a hard life for a head teacher back then!!!

  • The boy in the back row far right, next to OD Jones, is one of my dad’s brothers- either Glyn or Dewi Evans (we think Dewi). The photo’s date might therefore be late 1920s.
