Glamorgan have announced preseason fixtures ahead of the forthcoming County Championship campaign

Glamorgan have confirmed their 2017 preseason programme and County Championship openers.

In March, Jacques Rudolph's men will visit Taunton to play a two-day match against Somerset. The format of the game is yet to be decided.

The Somerset game will be followed by home matches against Gloucestershire and Nottinghamshire.

The first-class season starts with a three-day fixture against Cardiff MCCU also at the Swalec Stadium.

Glamorgan will fine tune their preparations before the County Championship campaign with a two-day match at home to Nottinghamshire in early April.

Their first County Championship clash sees them travel to Northamptonshire.

The club have announced admission for all three preseason games in Cardiff will be free of charge for spectators.
