England Cricket Managing Director Hugh Morris To Step Down, Take Glamorgan Role
The England and Wales Cricket Board on Monday said that England cricket Managing Dir HUGH MORRIS "is to stand down," according to Josh Reich of REUTERS. He is to take up a role as CEO and director of cricket at Glamorgan, "for whom he previously played" (REUTERS, 8/26). The PA reported the ECB "has started its recruitment process but there are two very prominent names already linked with the role." Team Dir ANDY FLOWER "was reported on Sunday to be ready to step down from his day-to-day involvement with the side and it would be a huge coup for the ECB to keep him involved with England's long-term strategy." Former England captain ANDREW STRAUSS "has also been mooted for the role" after working for Sky TV this summer (PA, 8/26).
