The Club is saddened to report that Peter Hearn, who played 200 matches for the County, has died aged 87. 

Hearn, who was capped in 1947, was a regular in the Kent eleven in the late forties and fifties. The left-handed batsman scored 8,138 runs for Kent at an average of 25.51, scoring 7 hundreds.  He also bowled occasional slow left arm spin and took 22 wickets.  He also played for Tunbridge Wells Cricket Club – the town of his birth.

The thoughts of the Club are with Peter’s family and friends at this sad time.
