Glamorgan Cricket have confirmed that Michael Hogan will now be joining the Welsh county at the start of the 2013 season.
Hogan was originally due to join up with Glamorgan for the last two months of the current season but will now see out the final year of his Western Australia contract. He has recently announced that he will also retire from playing cricket in Australia at the end of March 2013.
He will then join up with his new team mates at the SWALEC Stadium ahead of the start of the new season and will play for Glamorgan for a minimum of two seasons.
The Club has plenty of strength in depth in the bowling department and despite the unfortunate injury suffered by Graham Wagg, its group of talented young seam bowlers such as John Glover, Alex Jones, Mike Reed and Will Owen will now have further opportunities to impress.
