Player Biography

Shirt Partner – Kent County Cricket Supporters Club

Adam continues to develop as James Tredwell’s off-spinning understudy and continues to show steady progress in all forms of the game.

Since making his debut in 2011, the Loughborough University graduate proved to be a more than capable deputy for James Tredwell.

14 wickets in Championship cricket came at an impressive average of 25.79 and he claimed career best figures of 7-150 against Hampshire and made regular appearances in the Spitfires white-ball sides.

He broke through as first-choice spinner in four-day cricket in 2014: taking 48 wickets in 15 County Championship appearances.

In white-ball cricket, the Sidcup-born man claimed three wickets in three Royal London One-Day Cup matches and nine in nine Natwest T20 Blast clashes.

His consistent displays were rewarded with a call-up to the England Performance Programme in September 2014 for a batting and spin camp in Sri Lanka alongside Kent colleague Sam Billings.

He has been supported by the Brian Johnston Memorial Trust through the BJMT Elite Spin Bowling Programme.
