Callum Taylor

Congratulations to young Callum Taylor who was named in the Glamorgan CCC 15 
man Squad, for the recent T20 Blast match against Essex at Sophia Gardens.

Callum who emigrated to Australia when younger, has returned to Newport for the last 3 years to play Premier League cricket with Newport. Many impressive performances have taken the eye of Glamorgan and he has been a regular in the Glamorgan 2nd's team throughout this season.

Taylor who excels with bat, ball (off spin) and fielding, has scored 527 League runs for Newport in 9 completed innings, including a best score of 101 against Ammanford, at an average of 58.56. While with the ball he has taken 30 league wickets with best figures of 5 - 20 against Ynysygerwn, at an average of 11.23 per wicket.

He recently scored a very impressive 122 for Glamorgan 2nds, along with other fine performances throughout the season with both bat and ball.

Hopefully, there will be a 1st Class debut in the near future and the start of a long and successful career with Glamorgan. Taylor will return to Australia for the winter at the end of September. where he will play 1st Grade cricket for South Brisbane
