Club Statement: Royal London Cup Final squad selection

Kent’s Director of Cricket, Paul Downton, has today confirmed that the squad for Kent Spitfires’ Royal London Cup Final against Lancashire will be chosen from the same pool of players available to Kent during the group & knockout stages of the tournament.

This is a unanimous decision made by the Club’s coaching staff & Men’s Captain, Sam Billings.

The group of players available for Kent so far has won what have effectively been five knockout matches in a row, playing some excellent cricket, & fully deserve their opportunity to represent Kent in a domestic final.

After Kent Spitfires secured their place in the 2022 Royal London Cup Final at Trent Bridge, the Club is pleased to confirm arrangements for ticketing & travel for 17 September.

Tickets for the final, which begins at 11:00 are available solely via Trent Bridge:
