But Glamorgan will host an Ashes clash in 2015, as well as a Test against New Zealand in 2013.
“What makes Glamorgan is the supporters and I believe they are the best supporters in the country”
"We [Glamorgan] boxed ourselves in a corner financially," Powell added. We had to create a Test venue to recreate the Glamorgan brand and make it one of the biggest clubs in the country. It obviously hasn't worked.
He added: "We weren't able to find the players we wanted.
"We weren't able to go on pre-season tours and help the players as much as we possibly could."
Meanwhile, Powell, who scored 25 first-class centuries for Glamorgan and passed 1,000 runs in a season five times, is now looking forward to extending his county career with Kent.
But he said he would miss Glamorgan's supporters.
"They are the people I hold dear to me. What makes Glamorgan is the supporters and I believe they are the best supporters in the country.
"I got a little bit stale. It [the move to Kent] is probably what I needed. I've not enjoyed my cricket for a couple of years now really and I just think it might freshen me up.
"I don't think I have got anything to prove... I just want to get down to Kent, score a lot of runs for them, get promoted to the First Division, do well in one-day competitions and move forward and enjoy my cricket for the next two years.
"I'd love to play for another three or four years. If I pile on the runs and I'm enjoying myself there is no reason why I can't extend my career down at Kent."
