Pre-season tour to SA for Glamorgan

Glamorgan are embarking on a 12-day pre-season tour to South Africa next month.

The Welsh county’s squad will head to Potchefstroom in mid-March – the base of the club’s new captain Alviro Petersen’s Highveld Lions.

Glamorgan are billed to play three one-day matches against the North West Cricket Union, a North West Invitational XI and Uganda, as well as including a full programme of conditioning work.

The only player not included in the party will be 20-year-old all-rounder James Harris, who is currently touring with England Lions in the West Indies.

Petersen, who has controversially taken over the reins from Jamie Dalrymple, will link up with the squad in South Africa.

They will be based at the High Performance Centre and will use Senwas Park, the home of the Lions, as their training facility.

“The team is looking forward to visiting the captain’s homeland and I would like to thank North West Cricket and in particular Alviro in their help and support of the tour,” said Glamorgan’s managing director of cricket Colin Metson.

“This will be a tough tour in excellent surroundings and against strong opposition, and will be the perfect opportunity to finalise the planning for the coming season.

“Taking all the cricketing staff will also give everybody an opportunity to put a marker down for a first team spot.”
