Sussex have confirmed their captaincy roles for next season, with Ed Joyce appointed as club captain, alongside Chris Nash as his vice-captain.
Joyce, 34, took over the captaincy midway through the 2012 season as Michael Yardy stood down from the position in LV=County Championship and CB40 cricket. He led the side in four Championship matches and five CB40 games, guiding Sussex to a semi-final in the CB40 competition and a fourth-placed finish in the Championship.
Joyce said: "I hugely enjoyed doing the job for the last few months of the 2012 season and, having gone close this year, I feel very strongly we can bring some silverware back to Hove next year.
"With Murray Goodwin moving on and Rory Hamilton-Brown re-signing, the team will be slightly in transition next year. But it should also be a very exciting time for the club with perhaps some more opportunities for the younger members of the squad to show what they can do. I'm really looking forward to helping these guys develop."
