It's becoming a familiar, sorry tale. Simon Jones has suffered yet another injury setback - this time it's his calf. He has hardly played this season with his knee injury and, after 11 overs at Colwyn Bay, has broken down again

He won't play any further part in Glamorgan's Championship game against Northamptonshire and will miss the Pro40 with Somerset on Sunday.

Jones was out for most of last season following a knee operation, and the same knee flared up again this year. His contract is up at the end of the season, but Glamorgan are keen to retain him.

The latest match was only his third Championship match since mid-May, when he suffered another knee problem. His comeback for Glamorgan during the 2006 season, following his aborted return on England's tour of India, lasted four matches before he broke down against Ireland in the C&G Trophy.
