1st XI Captain: Beau Couldrey
On the back of an unforgettable, history making, double trophy winning 2022 campaign, the Kent Premier League and T20 champions enter the 2023 season knowing it’s only downhill from the top. But is it?!
A number of players have taken early preparations with stints abroad in the off season and we hope they bring back the outstanding form on show so far.
Liam Buttery and Rory Low are both playing in Melbourne and having good debut seasons, scoring well, when it isn’t raining. Our returning overseas player Gareth Severin has already notched up a few centuries back in Wellington and our club coach and Kent professional Alex Blake was amongst the leading run scorers and topped the six hitting league in the Nepal T20 competition. Following his success in Nepal, he is taking his explosive hitting to the Bangladesh T20 competition.
On top of this, and after being stung for the Kent league player of the season in 2022, Will MacVicar is as hungry as ever to notch up another award he has won twice previously.
It’s going to be a tough season to emulate the success of 2022 but the squad is full of confidence and determined in trying to achieve consecutive titles alongside enjoying good cup runs in the T20 and National Cup competitions.
And let’s not be hasty to close out the 2022 season success just yet. More may yet come, as we travel to Sussex for the area finals of the T20 competition.
We look forward to the support on and off the field in 2023 in trying to make it another unforgettable season at Barnet Wood Road.
