Ex-MD Metson leaves county
GLAMORGAN have announced they have parted company with former managing director of cricket Colin Metson.
The club say that Metson's new role as community and cricket development manager has been made redundant because of financial reasons.
Metson's initial appointment as managing director of cricket in November 2010 sparked major turmoil at Glamorgan, resulting in the high-profile departure of Matthew Maynard, the county's then director of cricket.
Metson's role then changed in February last year as part of an "organisational review" by Glamorgan.

All first-team affairs were taken over by Australian head coach Matthew Mott, who became head of elite performance.
A club statement said: "Glamorgan Cricket can confirm that Colin Metson's role as the club's community and cricket development manager is being made redundant for cost reasons.
"Last year proved to be a challenging 12 months for the club, both on and off the field. In particular, the weather badly affected our finances.
"Chief executive Alan Hamer will now oversee all aspects of the club's cricket in the community activities as well as the club's increasingly close working relationship with Cricket Wales."
Metson also spent a decade on Glamorgan's playing staff, with the wicketkeeper making his debut for the county in 1987 following a move from Middlesex.
