Alan Barter

Alan Barter

Position: Flyhalf

Born and bred in Penylan,  Alan learned his rugby at Cardiff High School, where he captained the first XV from 1950 to 1952 forging a powerful midfield partnership with another future Blue & Black Meiron Roberts.

After a taste of representative rugby with the Welsh Secondary Schools, for whom he was capped in 1952, followed by National Service in the RAF with appearances in the services Triangular Tournament, he went on to Cambridge University.

By this time Alan had already played for Cardiff the first of 33 games, which were to climax in the club's 14-11 win over Australia in 1957. Subsequently Alan's teaching career took him to Dulwich College, where he joined London Welsh and won a Wales trial cap.

Sadly a double fracture of the shin brought a distinguished career to a premature end. Later he became Head of English and Master in Charge of rugby at Sedbergh. Alan sadly passed away suddenly in 1998
