Hampshire moved to the top of Division Two as they wrapped up a six-wicket victory over Glamorgan before lunch on day four of their LV= County Championship clash at the Ageas Bowl.

The visitors came into the final day with a lead of 64 but could only add two runs to that before James Tomlinson wrapped up their second-innings by removing Tom Helm.

That left Hampshire a simple enough task and, while four wickets fell as they struggled with the new ball, an unbeaten 29 from James Vince steered them home.

Hampshire needed just 16 balls to end the Glamorgan innings as Tomlinson got Helm to edge to slip where Liam Dawson took a smart catch.

A target of 67 was never likely to cause the home side too many problems but captain Jimmy Adams was gone for a duck off the fourth ball of the innings as he was bowled by Ruaidhri Smith.

Opening partner Michael Carberry (14), who was named to the England limited-overs squad on Tuesday, was next to go as Stewart Walters took a fine diving catch in the slips off Smith.

Smith, who would finish the match with career-best figures of three for 38, had his third wicket two balls later when he trapped Dawson lbw and Hampshire were 27 for three.

Glamorgan opener Gareth Rees then claimed his first wicket in any format as Walters caught Will Smith (eight) at mid-on as he was trying to hit over the top but Hampshire now needed just 11 runs to win.

And they had them in the next over as Vince finished the game off with back-to-back fours through extra cover to keep his average above 100 for the season and hand Hampshire their first home win of the campaign.
