Kent's Jimmy Adams heads back home


KENT HEAD coach Jimmy Adams is leaving the club to return to Jamaica. The former West Indies captain has been at Kent for the last five years and guided them to second place in Division Two last season.

The 48-year-old said: "I've enjoyed my time at Kent which has been a great learning experience for me. I wanted to be involved in a club that was seeking to grow and I am fortunate to have found that here at Kent over the past five seasons.

"It's been a delight being involved with all our players as they have developed during the period and especially watching the younger players who have made the step up to first-class level.

"Working with the club to develop a stronger support team to back up our players has also been a highlight for me."

"I'm extremely grateful for the members and supporters who have consistently backed me, the team and the club's overall vision."

Chairman George Kennedy CBE said: "We thank Jimmy for his fine service of the club and wish him all the best for the future.

"His commitment to developing Kentish cricket talent is shown by the core of homegrown players now at the heart of our professional squad."
