Glamorgan have appointed former New South Wales coach Matthew Mott as their new head coach as they continue to build ahead of the 2011 season.
Mott, 37, will join forces with new captain Alviro Petersen as Glamorgan aim to improve their performances following a disappointing season in 2010.
Mott has guided New South Wales to success in both the Sheffield Shield and Big Bash Twenty20 competitions and was also assistant coach to Australia during the ICC World Twenty20 last year.
“We are delighted to have secured Matthew Mott as our new 1st X1 Coach," Glamorgan managing director of cricket told the club's website (www.glamogancricket.com).
"He has a proven track record of success and I look forward to working with him when he arrives in March, following the completion of his coaching commitments in Australia.
“Our new captain, Alviro Petersen, has previously spoken with Matthew and is looking forward to working in partnership with him to deliver success on the playing field”.
Mott added: “After spending six years coaching in Australia, I believe that now is the right time for me to further my coaching career, by accepting the role of 1st X1 Coach at Glamorgan Cricket.
“I am aware that the Club has a proud tradition and has a talented squad – I look forward to working with the players and the coaching team over the coming months and years.”
Mott is due to meet his new charges when he arrives in Glamorgan in March.
