MIDDLESEX must aim to go one better than last season when they open their 2009 County Championship campaign against Glamorgan.

The Lord's side eventually finished third in Division Two last summer, but that statistic masked their failure to ever mount a serious promotion challenge.

"Apart from the final month, we were terrible in Championship cricket," admitted Middlesex skipper Shaun Udal. "The stats say we had a half-decent season, but realistically we let ourselves down. The beauty of cricket, though, is you've always got an opportunity to put it right next season."

Middlesex take on Glamorgan at Lord's from April 22 to 25 and remain there to open their Friends Provident Trophy campaign against Scotland the following day.

The county also launch their defence of the Twenty20 Cup at Lord's when they face cross-town rivals Surrey on Monday May 25.
