Interesting to see Connor Brown is playing for the 2s at Taunton Vale.

At lunch day 2
Somerset 296/10

Glamorgan 58/1 Reingold is 36 not out

Not a huge amount of batting in the Glamorgan team.

From the highlights on the website the Somerset bowling looks weak. Nice to see a few players putting their hands up though. Salter as a middle order batsman anyone?

We've been there before. Salter was a useful batsman as a kid.

2nds setting themselves up for a very moderate run chase this afternoon.

You would hope that 150odd in two sessions should be easily gettable

Andy Gorvin with 6/50 leaving a target of 159 in 2 sessions. Sounds simple but there aren't too many specialist batsmen in the side. Not sure if Cullen has rejoined them. Wonder if the ability to have concussion subs changes the approach to just having a fielding sub who might just be an Academy player?

Unfortunately top 3 out for just 4 runs scored.

Brooks is a pretty decent opening bowler to come up against at 2nd XI level

In true Glamorgan fashion the lower order, led by Carey, see us home.

Andy Gorvin has had a good game. Not sure how his bowling would fair at the next level up?

Googled Gorvin, seems to have limited experience for his age although 2020 is a wasteland for most young sports people.

Two Wales MC appearances in 2019 where he took wickets and made runs v Dorset after a pair v Oxfordshire. Played a big part in St Fagens Championship side in 2019 ? Then fast forward to Cardiff UCCE v Glammy and this fixture where again he takes wickets and scores runs. Another Douthwaite ?

Captains St Fagans. Nice chap. Gentle medium pace.
