More Glamorgan news, and goodbye to Geoff Holmes

A good win over Western Province B by Glamorgan in a 2 dayer, and a final one day match today I understand.

Congratulations to Peter Walker on his election by a majority of 3-1 as the new club President. He says he'll be no 'yes man' to Paul Russell which I think is a good thing.
Sad news of the week is the death of Geoff Holmes at the ridiculously young age of 50. He was in a meeting, had a headache (don't we all get that), but then after leaving suffered a brian hemorrhage and died. Dreadful news.
He took a wonderful 5 wickets for 2 runs in Ebbw Vale once for Glam versus Derbyshire, and the 'grass bank' roared him on. I remember it well as I was operating the small scoreboard down by the rugby stand. RIP fella.
