Glamorgan captain Sam Northeast has broken the record for the highest first-class score at Lord's with an unbeaten 335 against Middlesex.

Northeast's knock is the largest individual score in the ground's 210-year history, surpassing the record held by Graham Gooch. The former England captain had set the previous record of 333 against India in 1990.

In round one of the Vitality County Championship Division Two, the new Glamorgan red ball captain shone in his new role as he took his side to a declaration on 620-3.

For Northeast, it's a case of picking up where he left off last season, having ended 2023 with an unbeaten knock of 166 against Yorkshire.

Having already recorded an unbeaten 410, the highest-ever score for Glamorgan, in a win over Leicester in his first season with the club in 2022, he now has the county's second-highest score. This one, crucially, is also the highest individual score at the home of cricket.

Coming to the crease when Glamorgan were 16-1, he had put on 129 with Billy Root (67) for the second wicket and 176 with Kieran Carlson (77) for the third wicket. Finally, he shared an unbroken stand of 299 with Colin Ingram (132 not out).

In his innings, Northeast batted 412 balls, hitting 36 four and six sixes.
