Paul Terry, the Hampshire manager, has announced he will be leaving his role at the end of the season.
"Results haven't gone the way I or the club would have liked, I feel it's the right time to stand aside and give them time to find someone else," he told the BBC. "You get driven by results but they haven't been good enough this year, we haven't done all the disciplines well enough, particularly our batting and catching.
"Things haven't gone to plan with overseas signings, Shane Bond had a few injuries, Shane Watson had to pull out a week or so before he was due here but we've been lucky with our current one Imran Tahir.
"But I'm of the belief that if you rely on your overseas players then you're not going to be a particularly strong squad."
Hampshire have had a difficult summer in both the Championship, where they sit third from bottom of Division One, and the Pro40, where they are propping up the first division.
