Glamorgan dispense with Metson

Colin Metson, whose appointment as Glamorgan managing director coincided with a turbulent period in the county's affairs, has been sacked after his downgraded role of cricket and community manager was made redundant.

Metson returned to Glamorgan with the county in crisis after the resignation of cricket manager Matthew Maynard, president Peter Walker and captain Jamie Dalrymple because of a managerial restructuring.

But Metson's power was soon on the wane and he was shunted away from first-team duties at the beginning of the 2012 season and given a lesser role in the community development programme. That role has now been made redundant and he will leave Glamorgan at the end of the week.
