MATTHEW Maynard will have a second spell in charge of Glamorgan after being appointed as coach for the 2019 season.

Maynard was appointed interim head coach for the winter following Robert Croft's departure in October.

The former England batsman and batting coach Maynard will continue to lead them in the coming season, with Glamorgan saying a recruitment process for a permanent head coach will start at the end of the campaign.

"I'm delighted to lead the squad into what we aspire will be a successful season," said Maynard, who was at the Sophia Gardens helm between 2008 and 2010.

"We know as a group we need to improve on our performances from last year. The way the lads have gone about their work so far this winter has been very pleasing."

Maynard rejoined Glamorgan as batting consultant last year and new director of cricket Mark Wallace believes his former boss is the ideal man for the job.

"It's great news for the club Matt has agreed to carry on as interim head coach until the end of the season," said the former wicket-keeper from Crickhowell.

"He is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable coaches on the circuit and knows the club inside out.

"Matt has had a big impact running our winter programme and we look forward to him continuing that into the summer."
