GUY Wolfenden, the current head of sales and marketing at Somerset CCC will be leaving the County Ground later this month to take up a new position of head of commercial at Edgbaston Stadium, the home of Warwickshire CCC.

Wolfenden, who hails from Taunton, started his involvement at the County Ground 15 years ago at the Indoor Cricket Centre and has worked in several posts before assuming his current role in 2006.

Chief Executive Guy Lavender said: "Guy Wolfenden has been a tremendous servant to Somerset CCC. He has worked his way up through the organisation and led the Sales and Marketing team superbly well.

"Membership at Somerset CCC is increasing in contrast to the majority of first class counties and we have some very loyal commercial partners, much of the credit for this is down to Guy and he will be missed."

And he added: “The club would like to thank Guy for all that he has done during his time at Somerset and we wish him every success in his new role at Edgbaston."
