Breaking news - Graeme Welch resigns
Graeme Welch has announced his resignation as Elite Performance Director this afternoon, something that, irrespective of results this season, comes as a surprise.
While four-day results have been disappointing, the signs were there for an improvement in the one-day game and I can't be the only one to be surprised by this.
No doubt there will be those pleased at the news, as such is life, but I will reserve judgement until more comes out on this one. Welch was one of my favourite players and, as coach, was both approachable and skilled. The interview I did with him in my latest book will be worth reading in this new light...
He will walk into another job in the game and I wish him well, wherever the future takes him. John Sadler takes over in the short term and I am sure we wish him the very best too.
More on this over the weekend and when we have all had a chance to digest it and what it means for us, as a club, moving forward.
