Club Chair Update: High Performance Review

Kent Cricket’s Chair, Simon Philip, has provided an update on the two High Performance Review recommendations which concern the structure & scheduling of county cricket.

Yesterday, I attended a virtual meeting for the 18 First-Class County Chairs to discuss the High-Performance Review.

As previously stated, there are two key areas for our Club – structure and scheduling.

For any changes to be enacted to these, 12 of the 18 First-Class Counties must be in favour. As previously covered in the cricket media, it is clear that there is no requisite majority for a reduction of LV= Insurance County Championship or Vitality Blast cricket or for the One-Day Cup to be played at the start of the season.

We are committed to finding solutions that improve the performance of England Cricket – there are 14 other recommendations in the Review that are non-contentious and may well have a significant positive impact on the performance of our Men’s International teams. However, at this time, there are no proposals or votes on the table concerning the amendment of the domestic schedule and structure.

Until this changes, the status quo prevails.

If any proposals do emerge in future, they will be assessed by the Board and the impact on the Club, our Members, supporters, players and stakeholders will be considered.  Members will be consulted in that eventuality.

However, in the absence of any proposals currently, there is nothing on which to consult.

2023 Membership is now on sale – guarantee your place at the home of the One-Day Cup winners this coming Summer, and gain access to the best seats in the house.
