David Harker, cure who will step down as Durham CEO in May, health has revealed he hopes to leave the cricket club as a major force in the game.

“I hope that my legacy, will be Durham recognised and respected as a force within English cricket. I joined just before Durham’s first season as a First Class County and to see the club progress as a source of England players, County Champions and an Ashes venue is a source of great pride,” he told iSportconnect.

“Domestic cricket in England and Wales is not without its financial challenges but Durham is well placed with significant development opportunities,” he added.

Harker also revealed his next career plans and why he decided to leave the organisation after a 13-year stint.

“I am hoping to go into a small local business in an industry in which I have a great interest and that will allow me to also pursue some non-exec opportunities and it is for these reasons that I am leaving although I will be staying on in a non-exec capacity,” Harker commented.
