Fletcher returns!

Duncan Fletcher, the coach who guided Glamorgan to the Championship title last year, will be returning to Glamorgan in 1999. The Western Province coach has agreed a three year deal with the Welsh county, after having taken a break from cricket since the end of the domestic season in South Africa, and turning down the chance of coaching South Africa A in Sri Lanka. A fortnight ago, Fletcher spent several days in Cardiff discussing plans for the future with the clubs officials, before going to Ireland for a holiday with his family. This news also means that John Derrick, who is currently acting as 1st XI coach for 1998, will revert back to his role with the 2nd XI.
