Glamorgan opening batsman Matthew Wood has announced his retirement from first-class cricket with immediate effect.

Wood, who moved to the Welsh side after being released by Yorkshire in 2007, cited family and personal reasons for the decision.

Director of Cricket, Matthew Maynard said:  “Matthew will be sorely missed both out on the pitch and in the dressing room; he was a great asset to our squad.”
