Glamorgan teen in historic haul
County Championship D2, Bristol: Gloucestershire 219 and 45-1 v Glamorgan 392 (day three, stumps)

Student James Harris wrote himself into cricket's history books by taking 7-66 as Glamorgan made the home side Gloucestershire follow on at Bristol.

At the age of 17 years and two days, the Swansea seamer became the youngest player ever to take seven wickets in the County Championship.

The hosts were 219 all out in reply to 392, with Marcus North making 94.

After breaks for bad light and drizzle, the home side closed on 45-1, still struggling, some 128 runs behind.

Harris, of Gorseinon College, led Glamorgan from the field to well deserved applause from team-mates and spectators.

He had figures of 3-28 from nine overs when Gloucestershire began the day on 118-5, and removed Steve Adshead (caught behind), Mark Hardinges (lbw) and North (caught behind).

The former pupil of Pontarddulais Comprehensive School provided a third catch for wicket-keeper Mark Wallace by finding the edge of Will Rudge's bat for his seventh wicket.

Alex Wharf wrapped up the innings by having Ashley Noffke taken by Wallace.

Harris earned a Bunbury scholarship to the National Academy in 2005 and signed a professional contract for Glamorgan just nine days after his 16th birthday.
