MATTHEW WOOD will be playing county cricket for Glamorgan next season.
The Welsh county have confirmed his signing on a two-year contract following Yorkshire’s decision to release the man who topped Emley Clarence’s batting averages this season in the Drakes Premiership.
Thirty-year-old Wood made his debut for Yorkshire in 1997 and, the following year, in his first full season, he passed 1,000 runs.
He was voted Yorkshire’s Player’s Player in 2003, when he recorded his highest first-class score of 207 against Somerset at Taunton, and in 2005 was an ever-present as Yorkshire won the County Championship.
Wood (pictured) has 6,840 first-class runs with 16 centuries.
