Glamorgan's hopes of catching Nottinghamshire at the top of the County Championship's Second Division suffered a setback against bottom-placed Durham in Cardiff yesterday.

Marcus North's career-best 219 had brought Durham their highest score of the season, 466. Then the Welsh county were reduced to 150 for 7 before an eighth-wicket stand allowed them to close on 258 for 7, still 59 runs short of avoiding the follow-on. Alex Wharf remained unbeaten on 53 while Darren Thomas made 52 not out.

Yorkshire are jostling with Hampshire for third place at the Rose Bowl and they were dismissed for 395 yesterday, missing out on the fifth bonus point.

The former England left-arm paceman Alan Mullally earned 6 for 68 while the Australian Phil Jaques recorded his highest score, 243. Hampshire had limped to 202 for 6 by the close.
