Tom Scott appointed Worcestershire chief executive on permanent basis

Scott initially replaced David Leatherdale, who left New Road to take up a role at the Professional Cricketers' Association, on a short-term basis but has now been approved to take full control by the county board.

Scott said: "After taking on the role in late February there has been a lot to learn about professional cricket but I have thoroughly enjoyed the process.

"There have been various aspects that have needed attention which provided me with a greater understanding of what makes the club tick. During this time I quickly realised I would like to do the job permanently, so when the board voted unanimously I was very pleased to accept."
