WE couldn't have asked for a better start to the season and now we have got the chance to lay the foundations for a promotion push.

DAVID HARRISON'S GLAMORGAN DIARY: We're heading to Lord's to win, not for a day out

South Wales Argus: PURE JOY: It was great to see the boys wildly celebrating Hampshire wickets

ALL the preparation is done for the Yorkshire Bank 40 final, now it's down to who can cope with the pressure at Lord's.

DAVID HARRISON SAYS: Lord's final is the stuff of dreams

South Wales Argus: MAGIC MOMENT: I'll never forget the changing room celebrations

10:02am Wednesday 11th September 2013

THE Glamorgan changing room was a special place to be as we toasted a place in a Lord's final on Saturday.

DAVID HARRISON SAYS: We're gunning for a fast start in T20

10:40am Thursday 27th June 2013

THE mayhem of Twenty20 cricket starts for Glamorgan tomorrow in Worcester – and hopefully a bit of revenge can help us start the tournament with a bang.

DAVID HARRISON SAYS: Aussie wonder ‘Hoges’ proving to be a real super signing for us

South Wales Argus: MICHAEL HOGAN: He’s been a great replacement for James Harris

9:00am Thursday 30th May 2013

IT was a real blow when James Harris left Glamorgan for Middlesex last year but the first few months of the season shows we’ve found the perfect replacement.

DAVID HARRISON SAYS: Battling start shows spirit of Glam side

South Wales Argus: PROMISING PERFORMANCE: Seamer John Glover celebrates the wicket of Gareth Cross on day one of our County Championship game with Lancashire at Colwyn Bay. We started superbly but unfortunately fell short in the fourth innings.

12:20pm Wednesday 15th May 2013

TO come out fighting after suffering a body blow like we did against Lancashire shows the real character of this Glamorgan team.

DAVID HARRISON SAYS: Lancashire stars will provide a stern test

9:20am Wednesday 1st May 2013

A LOOK down the list of players in the Lancashire side against us in the County Championship today shows the size of the task facing us in Colwyn Bay – but it’s a challenge that we are relishing.

DAVID HARRISON SAYS: Our early wobble will not shake confidence

7:00am Wednesday 17th April 2013

SOMETIMES in sport you just have to hold your hands up and say you were outplayed.

DAVID HARRISON SAYS: Time to get on my bike for Tom

8:00am Thursday 26th July 2012

I’LL start this week’s column with a confession.

South Wales Argus: GOOD TIMES: Dean Cosker and I with Tom on a pre-season tour in Cape Town, South Africa in 2009

7:10am Thursday 28th June 2012

I'M sure you can forgive me if I don’t include any cricketing updates this week due to the tragic events that took place last Monday morning.

DAVE HARRISON SAYS: Home finals day is the ultimate incentive

10:40am Thursday 14th June 2012

I DON’T think that we could have had better preparation for the start of the Twenty20 campaign than last weekend’s win against Durham.

DAVID HARRISON: Young bowling unit make an impression

10:00am Friday 1st June 2012

We returned from Hampshire last week feeling hard done by after losing by 31 runs despite playing four really good days of cricket.

DAVE HARRISON SAYS: Hours on the road just not cricket

10:00am Thursday 17th May 2012

After the past ten days I think I’m definitely qualified to work for the AA if this coaching business doesn’t work out.

DAVID HARRISON SAYS: New arrivals boost Glamorgan

7:50am Thursday 3rd May 2012

As you can imagine it has been a reasonably quiet week for us cricketers. The weather has been horrendous which has meant not one ball being bowled for 10 days. A friend of mine was telling me that even his son's rugby was called off due to a waterlogged pitch! Rugby called off in May? Says it all really.

DAVID HARRISON SAYS: Glamorgan will turn the tide

11:10am Thursday 19th April 2012

AS you have probably seen the first two County Championship games of the season haven’t quite gone to plan.

THE games have been coming thick and fast since the start of the season and we’ve been pretty quick out of the blocks with three Championship victories already meaning we’re currently sitting pretty in second place in Division Two of the County Championship.

DAVID HARRISON'S GLAMORGAN DIARY: Talented duo going places
