Player Biography

A right-hand batsman of some distinction, Alan Wells played for Sussex between 1981 and 1996, captaining the side for the last five of those years, and was extremely unlucky to win only one Test cap in an era when many were tried out – frustration at a lack of opportunities almost certainly drove him to join the rebel tour of South Africa in 1990. He was doubly unfortunate in that his one outing came against West Indies at The Oval – he made a duck and 3 not out, and was not chosen for the winter’s tour. He made one ODI appearance earlier that summer. In 1997 he moved to Kent before retiring at the end of 2001.
