Hampshire are looking for a new head coach following the resignation of Craig White.

The former England international, who was Hampshire's head coach for two years, has resigned so he can spend more time with his family in Yorkshire.

White joined Hampshire's coaching staff in 2012 as assistant coach and bowling specialist, before replacing Dale Benkenstein as head coach in November 2016.

The highlight of White's two-year tenure was the Royal London One-Day Cup triumph in June - Hampshire's first trophy in six years.

He said: “I’ve had a fantastic six years at Hampshire and I’m proud of what we’ve been able to achieve as a group in that time.

"Whilst it’s certainly been a tough decision and one that hasn’t been made lightly, spending long periods of time away from my family has become more and more difficult and I feel that now is the right time to return to be with them on a more permanent basis.

“I’d like to thank everyone at the Club for their support throughout the last six years, from the players to the coaching staff, members and supporters, and I wish them the very best for the future.”

Hampshire director of cricket Giles White said: “Craig has been an integral part of the Club since joining us in 2012, firstly as an assistant coach and then as head coach, and his dedication in that time has been outstanding.

“We understand his decision to step down and have been aware of the difficulties of being away from his family.

"On behalf of the club I’d like to thank Craig for all the hard work and incredible contributions during his time here, he will be missed on both a personal and professional level.

"We wish him and his family well for the future.”

A Hampshire Cricket statement confirmed the county 'will begin the process of appointing a successor in due course'.
