Last Time Out: 2021 County Championship edition

17 Dec 2020 | Cricket

Today's fixture announcement has confirmed the dates for the return of some less familiar opponents for Glamorgan - take a look back at the last time each side faced off, home and away in County Championship action, as we prepare for the 2021 season...


Home - Jun 6-9 2012 - Match Drawn

A sodden affair at Colwyn Bay in 2012 was the last time Yorkshire faced Glamorgan in a County Championship game in Wales, with Glamorgan's 117/3 from 34 overs the only action. Mitchell Starc picked up two wickets for the visitors.

2003 and 2004 also saw the fixture take place at Colwyn Bay, with 2001's fixture taking place at St. Helen's. The last time Yorkshire faced Glamorgan at Sophia Gardens in first-class action was 1998, with the visitors taking a 115-run victory away thanks to a Gavin Hamilton ten-wicket haul.

Away - Sep 4-6 2012 - Yorkshire win by eight wickets

David Lloyd made his first-class debut at Headingley in this match as Yorkshire, who were eventually promoted in second place (level on points with champions Derbyshire) made light work of the target of 111.


Home - Aug 28-30 2017 - Sussex win by 1 wicket

This Colwyn Bay clash saw Ollie Robinson guide his side home with a last-wicket stand of 32 with Danny Briggs, after Craig Meschede's 87, 41, and 4/61 had given Glamorgan a fighting chance.

The last time the sides faced in Cardiff the visitors were victors by a two-wicket margin, with an eight-wicket haul in the match for Timm van der Gugten not enough for the hosts.

Away - May 27-30 2019 - Match Drawn

Nick Selman carried his bat in the first innings for 76*, before tallying 99 as he put on a Club record 291 for the second wicket Marnus Labuschagne. Labuschagne's 182 drew a light-hearted rebuke from his coach for 'throwing away a triple', as the game drifted to a draw.


Home - April 11-14 2019 - Match Drawn

A run-fest of epic proportions, as Glamorgan smashed three centuries on the first day as Marnus Labuschagne and Billy Root marked their Glamorgan first-class debuts with tons and Kiran Carlson hammered a hundred in the evening session. Glamorgan tallied a rapid 570/8 before Northamptonshire made slow hay on a relatively flat pitch, plodding their way to 750 in 227.3 overs, the most overs bowled by any side post-war. Nick Selman's bouncers and Carlson bowling seam marked the high point of the final day.

Away - Aug 22-25 2020 - Northants win by 6 wickets

Glamorgan's defeat was oddly memorable, as Michael Hogan reached 600 wickets on the final day after two record-breaking centuries in Glamorgan's unusual batting innings. Callum Taylor hit an incredible debut century in the first innings and Marchant de Lange hit Glamorgan's fastest ever century in the second.

Home - May 4-6 2018 - Kent win by six wickets

Jack Murphy carried his bat in the first innings and Timm van der Gugten took a career-best 7/42 to help dismiss Kent for 174, but the irrepressible attack of Matt Henry and Darren Stevens combined for 16 wickets as Kent chased down the target of 195 with six wickets to spare.

Away - September 18-20 2018 - Kent win by an innings and 172 runs

Late September in Canterbury proved a dangerous task for Glamorgan, with Jack Murphy top-scoring in both innings as Henry and Stevens ran wild again either side of a Zak Crawley century.


Home - Aug 18-20 2019 - Lancashire win by an innings and 150 runs

Colwyn Bay was the host as Lancashire's dominant run of form in 2019 continued as Dane Vilas smashed 266 from just 240 balls as he peppered the ball around the picturesque Rhos-On-Sea ground.

2013 also saw Colwyn Bay host, as did 2001 and 1998. The last time Glamorgan and Lancashire squared off at Sophia Gardens in County Championship action, Glamorgan won by 48 runs as Matt Maynard tallied 214 off 314 and 68* off 75. A couple of declarations set up a tricky chase for the Red Rose visitors and a Croft 5-for and Cosker 4-for took Glamorgan to victory.

Away - Aug 21-24 2015 - Match Drawn

Rain played a part in this affair, as Craig Meschede's 4/101 was Glamorgan's top effort with the ball, before stubborn rearguard action from Rudolph, Ingram and Cooke helped Glamorgan avoid an innings defeat at Old Trafford.
