KYLE Abbott swept the board at the Hampshire Cricket end of season awards evening.

The South African won the Fans' player of the year, the Players' player of the year and the Bowler of the Year.

The latter award was certainly no shock as Abbott bagged 60 Championship wickets in his second season at The Ageas Bowl.

Only Essex title winners Jamie Porter (75) and Simon Harmer (73) took more wickets among top flight bowlers in 2017.

Abbott, who played in all Hampshire's 14 Championship games, took 23 wickets more than the second highest wicket-taker for the county - Gareth Berg.

Four times he took five or more wickets in an innings.

His best came in the first game of the season against Yorkshire at Headingley when he bagged 7-41.

He later took 5-59 against Middlesex and 5-58 against Essex prior to a stunning 6-20 burst that routed the newly-crowned champions in the penultimate game of the season.

Abbott also took 17 T20 wickets - only Mason Crane (18) took more among Hampshire bowlers - and nine in the Royal London One Day Cup.

James Vince was voted Batsman of the year, and again it was hard to argue with that.

Recently recalled to the England squad for the forthcoming Ashes tour, Vince was the county's leading runscorer in all three formats.

He scored 626 Championship runs, plus 542 in the T20 Blast and 463 in the Royal London Cup.

In the latter tournament, he recorded his career best one day score - a stunning 178 against Glamorgan - but still finished on the losing side.

Former skipper Jimmy Adams was voted Hampshire's Clubman of the year.

Adams made his Hampshire debut back in 2002 and won his cap four years later. He was still a regular in this year's Championship XI.

Kiwi Suzie Bates won the Southern Vipers' Player of the year for the second season running.

She scored 260 runs in six Kia Super League innings, including a century.
