James Vince: Hampshire name batsman as new vice-captain

Hampshire have named batsman James Vince as their vice-captain for 2014.

Vince was the club's top Championship scorer last season with 1,101 runs, including four hundreds, and was named the players' player of the year.

The 22-year-old told the club website:  "I can't wait to get started. I was delighted when I was approached.

"I've got plenty of fresh ideas so I'm really looking forward to supporting captain Jimmy [Adams] as much as I can so we can have a strong season."

Hampshire finished fourth in Championship Division Two last year, 31 points adrift of Northants who took the second promotion spot behind champions Lancashire.
