In 2007 he played two first-class matches for Warwickshire taking four wickets but he was released at the end of the season. He subsequently signed a two-year deal with Glamorgan. and scored his first ever 100 against Leicestershire on 6 August 2009 he also has a SC. He announced his retirement in August 2011, having failed to recover from a persistent knee injury. In all he claimed 90 wickets in 32 first-class games at an average 24.60.
