0 Peter Walker proud as Ashes lift Cardiff stadium free of 'Gulag' reputation

Peter Walker, one of Wales' most respected cricketing sons, would like to formally withdraw his description of the Swalec Stadium as "an unfriendly Gulag". The anger that led him to stand successfully as Glamorgan's president at the age of 72 has now subsided. "I was so upset that the club had become a Gulag," he said yesterday as he gazed benignly upon Cardiff's inaugural Test. "I'm happy to withdraw that now. We have recovered our friendliness. The Gulag has opened its gates."
