Only got beaten by 433 runs. At least they got the afternoon off to sunbathe after winning nothing again.


It takes some sort of genius to lose by 433 runs after reducing the opposition to 39-5 on the first morning.

Yes.

This season there are eight counties in the first division and ten in the second.

Re: Lancs v Glamorgan - County Championship Div 2

ty, I think it's three teams go up, and one comes down from the first division.

A quick calculation shows we need 31 more points to make promotion mathematically certain. In reality we'll need far fewer than that.

I know it's called the temporary stand, but it's effectively permanent. The only time it comes down is when there's a concert, because that's where the stage goes. They put it up again afterwards. It takes seven days to dismantle it and another seven to re-erect it.
