Durham Agree Terms With Vincent Wells

Durham County Cricket Club have agreed terms with ex-Leicestershire and England all rounder Vincent Wells. The 37-year-old has agreed to a 2 year contract.

Durham Coach, Martyn Moxon, is delighted to have an experienced player joining the squad. "Vince has played cricket at the highest level and I am sure he will have a positive influence on our younger players. The techniques they can learn from him will be invaluable to their development."

Wells arrives at the Riverside after ten years with Leicestershire, during which he represented England in the 1999 World Cup and was appointed county captain in 1999. Vince was awarded a Benefit Year in 2001. He scored more than 6,000 runs for Leicestershire, captured 200 wickets and played a key role in the County's two Championship successes of 1996 and 1998.

Vince is looking forward to joining Durham. He said: "I have been very impressed with the cricket management at Durham and I'm really excited to be joining such a progressive Club. Durham have some very talented youngsters and hopefully I'll be able to pass on some of the things I have learnt over the years."

He went on: "I'm very pleased to secure a two year contract with Durham County Cricket Club. I'm looking forward to working with Martyn Moxon next year. Durham have some exciting players in Stephen Harmison and Paul Collingwood and have an excellent overseas player in Martin Love. Hopefully with my experience with Leicestershire and England I can help develop and work alongside some of the younger players."
