The Bermuda Cricket Board (BCB) confirmed that former National Coach, Clay Smith, was on a fixed term contract that expired on July 7th. Prior to the termination of the contract, Smith was advised that the post was not continuing due to financial considerations and the review of the High Performance program, which would be revisited after the completion of the domestic season.
The BCB can also confirm that it received a letter from Smith on Tuesday October 2nd stating that he is withdrawing his service to BCB.
On October 4th the BCB responded to the correspondence confirming that in our view that Smith is a highly qualified coach with an outstanding playing career and has brought excellent value to the BCB programs. He was urged to reconsider his position in the light of the vast amount of development and high performance work that remains for all of us.
BCB President, Lloyd Smith, said, “We thank Clay for his tireless service to cricket across the breadth of our programs from Pee-Wee right up to the National squad. On behalf of the BCB I wish Clay all the best in his future endeavors and reiterate that he will be missed and surely will be warmly welcomed back whenever he is ready.”
