Former England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) chairman David Morgan will replace legendary England captain Mike Gatting as president of the MCC from October 1.

“While I am honoured to have been nominated by Mike Gatting as president designate of the MCC, this will not diminish my commitment to Glamorgan in any way,” Morgan said. “I have long admired the values and traditions of the MCC and I am sure the experience will be one of the highlights of my career.”

Gatting wished Morgan all the best and is hoping that he accomplishes a lot during his tenure as president. 

“David has been and remains one of the most influential voices in the world game, and I’m sure he will do an excellent job in leading the MCC through a very important time in its history,” Gatting said via a statement. “He is ambitious, creative and efficient and will be a fantastic leader for this wonderful club.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as MCC president so far, and I am looking forward to seeing the club through the Lord’s bicentenary celebrations in my final few months.

“David is the ideal person to succeed me and I’m delighted he has accepted my invitation.”
