Head Coach Craig White Leaves Hampshire  

The former Yorkshire and England all-rounder leaves Hampshire after six years at the Club

Hampshire Cricket can announce that Craig White has left the Club due to personal reasons.

White joined the Hampshire Cricket coaching staff in 2012, holding the positions of Assistant Coach and Bowling Specialist, before becoming Head Coach in November 2016 following the departure of Dale Benkenstein.

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.

Craig White

The former Yorkshire and England all-rounder led the Club to their first trophy in six years during his tenure as Head Coach as James Vince’s side claimed the Royal London One-Day Cup crown this summer.

White also oversaw a seventh NatWest T20 Blast Final Day appearance in eight years in 2017, as well as two Specsavers County Championship campaigns which resulted in Division One survival in both 2017 and 2018.

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.

Giles White, Director Of Cricket

The Club will begin the process of appointing a successor in due course.
