Glamorgan have announced that batsman Charlie Hemphrey’s contract with the club has been terminated by mutual consent.

Having joined Glamorgan in 2019, Hemphrey leaves Sophia Gardens with an agreed termination of his remaining year at the club.

The batsman played 13 first-class matches for the Daffs, scoring 608 runs with five half-centuries.

Commenting on Hemphrey’s departure, director of cricket, Mark Wallace, said: “Charlie’s situation with his England qualification has been well publicised.

“The incentives for fielding home qualified cricketers are now greater than ever and as a result we were open and honest with Charlie in telling him that it would have to be a consideration in selection moving forward.

“We’ve had some long conversations with Charlie to work out the best solution for everyone and finally agreed that we would shake hands on the rest of his contract with the club.

“Charlie was a very popular member of the squad and has been a hugely positive influence at the club since joining.

“Everyone at Glamorgan wishes him and his family well for the future.”

On departing Glamorgan, Charlie Hemphrey expressed the value of his time at the club.

“I’d like to thank Glamorgan for giving me the opportunity to play County Cricket.

“I loved playing for the club, living in Wales and I couldn’t have asked for better teammates.

“When the new regulations came in place, this was always the likely outcome, but I’d like to thank the club for their support at a difficult time.

“I’ll be supporting the club from Brisbane and will always be a lifelong Glamorgan fan.”
