Fatkin cites differences at Glam


Former Glamorgan chief executive Mike Fatkin says there were "differences" of opinions in the way the club should go forward.

Fatkin made his comments in a statement issued by Glamorgan Cricket Club after he parted company with them last week.

"There have been some differences of views lately in terms of the direction which the club should be taking," the 44-year-old said.

"This makes the timing all the more appropriate for both parties."

He added: "Not only will it give me adequate time to reflect thoroughly on my next career move but it will also allow the club to reorganise for the Ashes Test match in July."

Fatkin was instrumental in getting Glamorgan's ground up to Test match standard.

The 44-year-old Yorkshireman had been with the Welsh county since the mid-1980s.

He became Glamorgan secretary following Gwyn Stone's retirement and then was promoted to the post of chief executive.

He has overseen one of Glamorgan's most successful eras and was at the helm when the club lifted the County Championship title in 1997, as well as the one-day league titles of 2002 and 2004.

Chairman Paul Russell said: "Mike has been an outstanding servant to Glamorgan Cricket.

"What the Club has achieved under his leadership has been truly remarkable."
