2017 marked the fortieth anniversary of Glamorgan’s famous appearance at Lords in the Gillette Cup Final against Middlesex. It was a wonderful achievement for a County side such as Glamorgan to be in their first Lords Final and Andrew Hignall put together a slide show commemorating the event in the St Helen’s Lounge during the fixture with Durham.The guests included members of that 1977 team who attended a very enjoyable evening with supporters where they spoke about the special day.
