Glamorgan batsman Matthew Wood has announced his retirement, citing personal reasons, with one year of his two-year contract remaining.

Wood, 31, had a mixed season in 2008 after being released by Yorkshire. Although he turned in some reasonable performances in the Friends Provident Trophy, he failed to establish himself in the Championship side.

"Matthew was a great asset," said director of cricket Matthew Maynard. "He will be sorely missed both out on the pitch and in the dressing room."
