Glamorgan have confirmed the appointment of former captain Matthew Maynard as interim head coach. Robert Croft left his post as head coach last month following a three decade association with the Welsh county and Maynard has stepped up to fill the vacancy.
Glamorgan finished bottom of the County Championship last term, while they also failed to reach the knockout stages of the T20 Blast, and Maynard has plenty of work to do during the off-season.
The 52-year-old, who spent 20 years with Glamorgan as a player, will oversee proceedings during winter training as the club look for a long-term successor.
Maynard told the club’s official website: “I’m delighted to take up the role as interim head coach. Glamorgan has always been my home, so when Hugh asked me to coach the team over the winter it was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down.
“We’ve had a couple of tough years but I’m very excited at the prospect of working with our talented bunch of players over the winter and I can’t wait to get started.”
