HE once played alongside West Indian legend Sir Viv Richards - but on Friday cricket star Tony Cottey was March Town’s guest of honour at The Avenue.
Cottey recounted memories from his 18-year county cricket career to members who attended March’s annual dinner in the pavilion.
The Welshman is one of Glamorgan’s greats, having starred for them from 1986-1998 before moving to Sussex. His batting helped both counties win the championship in 1997 and 2003, respectively.
Speaking in March on Friday, Cottey paid tribute to Sir Viv - who spent three years at Glamorgan towards the end of his career.
He gave an insight into how the county sides approached their cricket and how the game changed as his career progressed.
