“I am delighted to continue as Captain of this fantastic county and I am looking forward to having a great working partnership with Paul as Captain and vice-captain.”

Cricket director, Mike Watkinson, said: “Glen has done an excellent job as captain and we are delighted that he will continue in charge as we look forward to the exciting challenges that 2014 will bring.

“Paul will be the first official Vice-Captain for several seasons and will give valuable support to Glen.”

Head coach Peter Moores, added: “It’s great news that Glen has committed to leading the Team again in 2014 and the addition of Paul as Vice-Captain will give him valuable support and create an opportunity for Paul to further develop his own leadership skills.”
