Geoff Holmes

I learned this morning of the death at only 50 of Geoff Holmes, who brightened the Glamorgan cricket team of the 1980s. The cricinfo obituary records his scoring two centuries in a match against Somerset, and I believe I saw the first of them, on a brilliant day in Taunton.

Although a Geordie, he settled and committed himself to the development of cricket in Wales after injury forced him to stop playing. He was a perceptive, and witty, expert summariser for Radio Wales. He will be much missed.
