Glamorgan C.C.C. recorded a profit of £111,921 in 1998 - this is the second
highest figure in the club`s history, and one which was achieved despite 1998
being a very damp season.
Mark Frost, the former Glamorgan seam bowler, will be the new Director of
Cricket for the Cricket Board of Wales. The 36 year old replaces Peter Walker,
who will retire at the end of May after working for the C.B.W. since 1996.
Mike Fatkin, the Secretary of Glamorgan, paid tribute to Peter`s work -
" he has worked tirelessly to heighten the profile of the recreational game,
enabling the placement of Cricket Development Officers in North Wales, Powys
and South Wales to come about and raising sponsorship funds for a variety of
junior cricket activities."
