Mor­ris stands down as Glam make reshuf­fle

South Wales Echo - - Sport -

HUGH Mor­ris has stepped down as Glam­or­gan di­rec­tor of cricket af­ter five years in the role as the county un­dergo a reshuf­fle.

Mor­ris will fo­cus on in­creas­ing his du­ties as chief ex­ec­u­tive af­ter an in­de­pen­dent re­view of Glam­or­gan’s sea­son de­manded changes at the welsh county.

The search now be­gins for a re­place­ment as di­rec­tor of cricket, with Mor­ris re­main­ing at the club.

“With the dis­ap­point­ing per­for­mances on the pitch this sea­son and the need to spread my time more evenly across the busi­ness, it has been de­cided to split the chief ex­ec­u­tive and di­rec­tor of cricket roles at the Club,” said Mor­ris.

“Next year we have four Cricket World Cup matches at Sophia Gar­dens, as well as an IT20 match, fol­lowed by the ECB’s new com­pe­ti­tion in 2020 and the new in­ter­na­tional cal­en­dar.

“We are also work­ing with Cricket Wales on de­vel­op­ing a strat­egy for cricket in Wales to grow the game across the coun­try. I thor­oughly en­joyed my time in the po­si­tion but this is the right time for my­self and the club to bring in some­one with a fresh per­spec­tive to lead the de­part­ment.”
