Glamorgan County Cricket Club have reached a settlement with Matthew Maynard after he resigned as their director of cricket in November.
The former England batsman left the club after Glamorgan brought in former county wicketkeeper Colin Metson over him into a new post as managing director of cricket. They also appointed South Africa batsman Alviro Petersen as the new captain, replacing Jamie Dalrymple.
Maynard had sought legal advice about a possible claim for constructive dismissal but he has now reached an ‘amicable agreement’ with the county.
The club’s Chief Executive Mr Alan Hamer said: “The Club greatly appreciates the hard work and dedication provided by Matthew to the Club during his time at Glamorgan.
“We were very sorry to lose him and he will be missed at the Club by all those who were fortunate enough to play or work with him. I would like to wish him all the very best for the future.”
Maynard responded by saying that he had always been and would continue to be a keen supporter of the Club notwithstanding the difficulties in the relationship over the last few months.
Maynard said: “I am very proud to have been such an integral part of the Club and its history. I sincerely hope that it will go on to enjoy a successful forthcoming season.”
