Glamorgan player of the season Michael Hogan says he wants to play another five years for the county.

Seamer Hogan, 33, who has become the quickest Glamorgan player to 100 first-class wickets, picked up his second consecutive player of the season award.

"I'm hoping I've got a few years left in me," said the Australia-born seamer, 33, who plays under a UK passport.

"I've two years left here and I want to make them the best years. But [I would like] four or five years at least."

Hogan claimed 98 wickets in all competitions in 2014 despite missing three weeks of the season because of paternity leave in his native Australia.

On winning the award again, Hogan added: "To get it two years in a row I'm really happy.

"I'm very happy with the way it went. I've got two years left here and hopefully more years after that."

But Hogan will be hoping more success in 2015 after a frustrating summer in which the county finished second from bottom in County Championship Division Two.

Glamorgan also missed out on the One-Day Cup quarter-finals, and more disappointingly failed to reach the T20 Blast finals day after a one-run defeat by Lancashire in the quarter-final that particularly frustrated Hogan.

"We probably panicked a bit. We should have won that game," he added.

"We if we keep exposing our players to that sort of situation in games and we are only going to get better.

"You learn lessons, you move on and hopefully we will be better for it next year."

At the awards ceremony run by the supporters' group St Helen's Balconiers, Chris Cooke was named Championship player of the year,

Jacques Rudolph took the One-Day Cup player award.

All-rounder Jim Allenby was player of the year for the T20 Blast, while spinner Andrew Salter took the young player of the year award.
