I have said all along that that the CEO in his new role is just looking after his pension.
He has frightened candidates off with the job description which would only mean that someone from Glamorgan would get the job. Wallace is a nice man but has no experience of such a role and I genuinely wish all the best but if things do not go right he will take the wrap not the CEO. From what I hear Maynard does not have the respect of the players which does not auger well for the future.
For the first time in nearly fifty years I will not renew my membership and will watch from afar. The new team have the opportunity to put things right and I really do wish them well but I foresee many excuses why this is not working or happening but and the same time taking home a nice wedge!

I join in wishing Mark Wallace the best, I never heard anything other than he is a good man. I agree this now makes MM perhaps not the ideal choice as Coach but are there any viable alternatives with no Glammy history. Outsiders from overseas like a Warren Gatland do not come cheap, Glammy do not the WRU`s money.I'm not sure Glamorgan are any worse off than most other counties.
Merry Xmas to all on here and best wishes for 2019.

I would bet my pension that all three CEO, DOC and head coach will all be on six figure salaries. Someone mentioned that other counties are more successful at nurturing their youngsters while ours mostly flounder. The system at academy and under 17 level must be quickly addressed. There are thirty nine cricket boards throughout the UK would it not be a good idea to cast our net wider and link up with other boards if our cupboard is bare?By all means look around but there are plenty of boys playing cricket in Wales that should provide a few Glamorgan players of the future. Too often they have fallen at the final hurdle and that is an issue.
I believe there is nearly half million sitting in cricket wales's coffers just showing that they can handle government money. Cricket Wales is purporting to be a not for profit organisation so how about giving Glamorgan money to employ a UK based scouting systems? Too forward thinking to even consider?
