Have stated before that I have a friend who often gets ‘gossip’ from inside Glamorgan most of which has proved to be true or unconfirmed. He rang me earlier as he knew I’d be interested in the DOC appointment. Apparently, the actual number of applicants was low (probably overwhelmed by the job description and financial status of Club) with only 4 interviewed. One withdrew during the interview process and only one was working as a Coach at a County and that in an Assistant role without the higher level academic and administrative qualifications desired. Wallace was by far the best candidate as far as matching the vast different aspects of the job description and was the only one who understood the Welsh cricketing set up tied in with Glamorgan which is completely different to any other County. Any appointment can only be made by choosing the ‘best’ candidate from those who apply so we cannot really criticise those who made the appointment and without disrespecting Wallace in any way, he was obviously the best of a ‘bad’ bunch. Much as we might love and clamour for an experienced, outstanding outsider, it’s obvious they don’t want us!!!
