What’s to be done with in­glo­ri­ous Glam­or­gan?

BE­TWEEN 2014 and 2017 Glam­or­gan’s record was ut­terly abysmal. The only high­light was reach­ing the 2017 T20 Fi­nals.

Dur­ing this pe­riod Glam­or­gan played 53 County Cham­pi­onship matches and won only 13. It played 32 one-day matches, also win­ning only 13. The T20 re­sults were a lit­tle bet­ter, play­ing 56 matches and win­ning 28.

The 2018 sea­son’s re­sults to date, how­ever, are even worse. The team has played 11 County Cham­pi­onship matches, win­ning only one, and played eight one-day matches, also win­ning only one. The T20 record is marginally bet­ter with a 50% suc­cess rate.

With such a poor record isn’t it time to ad­dress the fol­low­ing prob­lems: a) Should the head coach be sacked? b) Should there be a change of per­son­nel in the club’s man­age­ment? c) Will the newly formed board take full re­spon­si­bil­ity for the poor per­for­mances and take the ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tion to rec­tify the sit­u­a­tion?

Can any­one re­mem­ber when Glam­or­gan last played a full four­day County Cham­pi­onship match that was not weather af­fected? Glam­or­gan used to boast that it not only a rep­re­sented a county, but also a coun­try. What a shame that it con­tin­ues to let not only the coun­try down, but its most valu­able as­set – its mem­ber­ship.
