The last in what has proved to be a popular series of Anniversary Talks, celebrating Glamorgan Cricket’s 100 years as a first-class county, will take place via ZOOM on Thursday 2nd December, starting at 1915.
“Glamorgan CCC – the 2000s and 2010s” will involve a group of the Club’s former players including Dean Cosker, Mike Powell, David Harrison and Mark Wallace, the current Director of Cricket, with the evening looking back on two decades which saw the Welsh county win one-day competitions in 2002 and 2004 besides featuring in Lord’s finals in 2000 and 2013, as well as appearances at T20 Finals Day in 2004 and 2017.
These years also saw significant changes off the field with the creation of the Sophia Gardens stadium and Test Cricket being staged in Wales. Indeed, the panel will reflect on the 2009 and 2015 Ashes, as well as the other high-profile matches and tournaments which Glamorgan Cricket have successfully staged over the course of the past few years.
Once again, the evening will embrace the recollections of the panel of former players, together with a photographic presentation using copyrighted material from the Club’s Archives. As usual, attendance at the virtual meeting is free of charge, and anyone wishing to attend is asked to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Wednesday, 1st December. A confirmation reply will be sent out, together with log-in details for the event.
