Vince voted Hampshire's Player of the Year
10:04am Saturday 28th September 2013 in Sport
James Vince received Hampshire's Players' Player of the Year award at the club's end-of-season do.
The 22 year-old was recognised by his teammates for an outstanding season, particularly in the LV County Championship.
Vince scored a career-best 1,101 runs for the season at 61.6 (only Simon Katich and Moeen Ali averaged more in division two) and his four hundreds included three in successive matches earlier this month.
His sensational 129 in the first game of Hampshire’s YB40 defence against Essex at Chelmsford was the highlight of his limited-overs season.
Michael Carberry was named Batsman of the Year following a prolific season, particularly in the Friends Life t20, which earned him England call-ups in all formats, including a place in next month's Ashes tour party.
James Tomlinson was the only candidate for the Bowler of the Year award after leading Hampshire's Championship attack with 53 wickets at 24 apiece, his best return since 2008.
The evening also included tributes to Dimi Mascarenhas following the end of his outstanding 18-year career with the county.
