Very sad for Glamorgan having listened to commentary and (tried to) read the local paper report on the Hants CB40 game. It seems no food concessions were open at the ground (except perhaps for members), very few people turned up (maybe they were hungry?) and there was no report of the match in the next day's South Wales Echo (4 pages on the return of Craig Bellamy).

What is happening at the SWALEC?

Glamorgan have shown that they have the players to be competitive, but they could do with some strengthening.

However, if they don't do that, but instead ship players such as Waters and maybe Harris, and then Croft retires, they will end up just like Leicestershire - marooned in all competitions and unable to compete for anything.

They have to make the choice.

And if they don't up their game commercially they'll have no money for players anyway.

Huw Waters and John Glover have signed contract extensions to 2014, which is a good boost.

The news from Cardiff is that Glamorgan have managed to survive the off-season so far. I went to Sophia Gardens for a while this afternoon to watch them bowling against Gloucestershire. It was snowing. Mike Reed was dropping it too short (admittedly this is easily done when you're about 7 feet tall and bowling to Jack Taylor) and swore loudly when he bowled his nth no-ball. Dean Cosker still walks like he has farm machinery secreted about his person. Then it got dark, the umpires called play off for the day, and I wandered home through the arctic gloom.

Come on the Glams, let's have your thread back on the first page. The weather in Cardiff is bright and sunny this morning, so hopefully it'll stay that way for a while, and Allenby can kick on to a ton, and we can have a sizeable first-innings lead. Good stuff from Mike Reed on Wednesday ... hoping for more of the same later today and tomorrow.

Have you seen much of Reed? If so, what can you tell us about him?

Only a few overs, to be honest. He's tall, wiry and aggressive and gets some good bounce. He's seemingly being preferred to Waters at the moment, so it'll be interesting to see how he gets on in the next few games.

Samaraweera out! Hogan strikes! Looks like (even) Glamorgan should win from here.

Interesting that Will Bragg got a bowl and promptly doubled his career tally of wickets.

Bowling change of the season, I'd say. Too bad he didn't get to hit the winning run.

Gareth Rees is going to have to start making runs very soon if he's to have any chance of extending his career beyond this season. He's not even making runs for the 2s.

Rees supposedly got some runs in club cricket this weekend, wonder if that'll help him.....

In other news a Glammy XI that included Mott beat a Legends XI in a T20 game for Wallys benefit year Not sure what would have been more fun, seeing Mott top score for Glammy, Morris top score for the legends or Wally taking wickets.

He's got a double first in Maths and Physics, so that pretty much makes him a genius in that field, so I don't think he'll be too concerned about finding a suitable career outside cricket.

Also, I think the Maynard tragedy may also have hit him hard, as it did with some other players. He listed him as one of his cricketing heroes in the 2012 Who's Who.

It's possible it affected a fair few of the Glamorgan boys, just like it hit Hamilton-Brown big time, he moved on to try and make things easier for him too.

I'm also awaiting the appearance of one Simon Jones in a 4 day game his contract states he'll play.

There's an interview with Jim Allenby in this week's The Cricket Paper. Apparently he's out of contract at the end of this season and some other counties have shown interest. But he said his future is by no means decided - he could well still stay at Glamorgan.

We can only hope he stays with us, he's been our best player for a couple of years now so to loose him would be a massive blow.
