    Glamorgan drop merger hint

    From the BBC Sport website:-

    Glamorgan coach John Derrick says financial pressures could force the Welsh county to consider a cross-border merger.

    Record losses last year and funding cutbacks from the England and Wales Cricket Board have forced membership prices to nearly double and contributed to the decision to stick with just one overseas player.

    With rumours of more financial cuts in the domestic game, Derrick said Glamorgan could look for a link-up with a side from the west country.

    "There could be an argument for us blending with Gloucester, Somerset or Worcester," Derrick told BBC Radio Wales' Midweek Sport programme.

    "It's similar to what's going on in Welsh rugby - we need to get together quality squads for international cricket."



    Do we need to re-fortify Offa's Dyke?

    No way....

    Not a chance this will happen as long as Peter Anderson breathes and is in his office. Many people have a pop at him (I have on several occasions) but he is vociferous in his opposition to such rubbish as a South West team being formed. I wish Glamorgan all the best but hope their chiefs stop peddling such proposals around as I am bitterly opposed to it.
