Tom Maynard completed a maiden first-class century and Chris Schofield was run out for 99 as Surrey dominated Glamorgan on day two in Cardiff.

Unbeaten on 60 overnight, Maynard (123) took his fifth-wicket stand with Zander de Bruyn to 216 on the way to a hundred against the club he left in December.

Schofield and Gareth Batty (52) heaped more misery on the Welsh county, with Surrey declaring on 575-7.

Stuart Meaker then struck three times to reduce Glamorgan to 95-4 at stumps.

Maynard, who was caught off a no-ball on 36 on the first evening, was given another life on 73 when wicketkeeper Mark Wallace missed a stumping chance.

Reprieved, he and de Bruyn went on to set a new fifth-wicket stand for Surrey against Glamorgan, beating the 183 by Andrew Sandham and Robert Gregory at the old Cardiff Arms Park in 1928.

Schofield, dropped in the slips on nine by Alviro Petersen and again on 83 by Will Bragg in the deep, missed out on a hundred when he was run out in bizarre fashion by Wallace.

That prompted the Surrey declaration, Meaker trapping all three of Petersen, Bragg, and Michael Powell lbw in the evening session, while Batty accounted for Gareth Rees in similar fashion.

DAY TWO REACTION

BBC Wales' Edward Bevan:

"Glamorgan have much to do if they are to avoid defeat in this game.

"They need 426 to avoid following on and, without Ben Wright and Jim Allenby in the middle order, someone needs to score a big hundred.

"Tom Maynard's innings for Surrey said much about his temperament as he faced his former team-mates for the first time since leaving Glamorgan last year."
