Just had an interesting chat with a Glamorgan friend and would welcome views of others on the following. I had thought that the position of Director of Cricket would include being Head Coach but apparently that is unlikely as would be too much as was Huw Morris’ previous commitment. It appears that this job nowadays requires many skills including a lot of administrative work involving business/technology acumen as well as experience of cricket. Managing all levels of Glam teams and liaising with clubs, Cricket Wales, promotion of the game, etc would seem likely to be in the job description. Therefore, a suitable degree or higher level qualification would be beneficial with necessary, proven admin experience as well as cricketing experience/high level coaching. With the salary Glamorgan will have on offer, are they going to attract a high calibre. Does Croft have the necessary, business skills or Jim Allenby as mentioned before. Understand that Collingwood, who many would welcome, has just been divorced and will not move from Durham because of children. Anyone else spring to mind. What about Dan Cherry who has worked at Glamorgan for many years with Hugh Morris or even David Harrison who I think is degree qualified and used to work as analyst? Thoughts anyone?
