Middlesex CCC have announced they have parted company with coach Toby Radford, who had been at the club for five years. The altering of his role under after restructuring was given as the principal reason for his departure.
Chief Executive Vinny Codrington said in a statement:
"We have had a significant restructuring of our cricket department in the last year, and Toby has decided that he would prefer to pursue his opportunities elsewhere.
“He leaves with our thanks for his magnificent efforts with our Academy and our First and Second teams, culminating in the pivotal role he played in our victory in last year’s Twenty/20 Cup.
“He will remain a friend of the club for many years to come and we will miss him.”
Radford added: “I asked to leave because this season's role has been very different from what it was last year.
“I very much enjoyed my five years’ coaching at the club, and will miss many of the staff and players with whom I have worked during that time.
“I wish Middlesex and the players every success for the rest of this season and for seasons to come."
