Exclusive: Toby Radford in frame to succeed Matthew Mott at Glamorgan
TOBY Radford, the former Middlesex coach and current West Indies assistant, has emerged as a potential candidate to succeed Matthew Mott at Glamorgan.
The Welsh county announced earlier this month that Mott will be leaving his role as elite performance director at the end of the season, as part of a major overhaul at the Swalec Stadium.
Glamorgan have decided to scrap that role, appointing former England Cricket Board managing director Hugh Morris as director of cricket and chief executive, and leaving a vacancy for a head coach.
The Evening Post can reveal the county have been approached by the agent of Radford, who is from Caerphilly and currently the batting and assistant coach of the West Indies.
His contract with the West Indies Cricket Board is negotiated on a tour-by-tour basis and, with the West Indies not playing until December’s series against New Zealand, Radford is free to negotiate with other teams.
The Welshman boasts an impressive CV, leading Middlesex to the 2008 Twenty20 Cup and playing a prominent role at the ECB during Morris’s time at the governing body.
“I’m a proud Welshman and I’ve always supported Glamorgan — it would be the ideal opportunity for me,” Radford told the Evening Post.
“There have been discussions between my agent and the club, but at the moment they are at an early stage.”
