Differing views make interesting reading re the changes in management at Glamorgan. I am fully behind Hugh Morris and thank him for all his efforts to reduce our debt - the combination of two jobs was always a difficult one to fulfil and I hope that they do not make the mistake of combining DOC and Head Coach. As for candidates muted above ie Allenby, Powell, Butcher, Wallace, Leary all have connections with Glamorgan so an outsider might be the answer but, unless we offer a big salary, who will we attract? I believe Allenby has been coaching here over the summer and Powell is a sports teacher at a public school. Not sure about Butcher but Wallace certainly has the credentials. See from his Twitter details that he has BA and MA, Level 4 Coaching, was Chairman of the PCA for 4 years and is now a Personal Development Officer there. Also, commentates on radio and seems to be well respected. O’Leary is also doing great things so, perhaps, we should not discount such people. Another one who comes to mind is Ian Thomas who, I believe, is now in overall charge of the PCA Development programme and high profile in cricketing circles, still living in the area, but could we afford him? Very interesting and would like others opinions please.
My friend also said, jokingly, that Jason Gillespie loved his time at Glamorgan and living in Cardiff - if only!!!
