Scorecard

Australia batsman Shaun Marsh hit an assured century on his Glamorgan Championship debut as they took a useful advantage over Gloucestershire.

The visitors finished 60 runs ahead on 296-5, Marsh's 111 including 18 fours before he fell to hard-working Dan Worrall with the new ball.

Marsh shared a century stand with Kiran Carlson (45) for the third wicket, after opener Jack Murphy's gritty 47.

The labouring home attack also lost Liam Norwell to a hamstring injury.
