Sussex v Glamorgan, Hove, 27-30 August 2010

An excellent Bank Holiday weekend of cricket on the South Coast saw Glamorgan emerge from their County Championship match versus Sussex having got the better of a drawn contest, and with 9 valuable points towards promotion in the bag.
.
Highlights included a brilliant 142 from Mark Cosgrove in the first innings, 76 from Tom Maynard in the second and another encouraging 5 match wickets for the vastly improved seamer Huw Waters.

Ohhh so wonderful
I am certainly going to miss Glammy a lot, all the Div2 clubs I like, besides Middle, are ascending...(certainly Glamorgan will?), it is going to be a lonely, lonely next year in Div2 for Middlesex...
