TEAMS

Born in South Africa, but raised in Chepstow, Adrian Dale made his Glamorgan debut in 1989 whilst still at Swansea University.The right handed batsman and accurate seam bowler was a member of the successful Combined Universities side, and after coming down, he has become a key figure in Glamorgan's successful one day team.

However, his success has not been restricted to the limited-overs games, and in 1993 he shared a record partnership of 425* for the 4th wicket with Viv Richards against Middlesex at Cardiff. Dale's contribution was a career best 214* and at the end of the season, he was selected for the England A tour to South Africa.

In the mid-1990`s, Dale was hampered by some niggling back injuries and a loss of form with the bat, but a match winning hundred against Northamptonshire in May 1996 heralded a return to form. He secured a regular place at number three in 1997, and since then he has been a consistant and reliable top order batsman.

2000 saw Dale deservedly win the Glamorgan Player of the Year Award, with over 800 runs and 23 wickets in first-class cricket, as well as many important contributions with both bat and ball in the limited overs games. Adrian followed this up with another fine all-round performance in 2001, winning the Player of the Year award again. The shrewd all-rounder enjoyed a good Benefit Year in 2002, and was an ever-present member of the side that won the National League title.
