Club unveils 150th Year emblem

To celebrate the 150th Year of the founding of Kent Cricket on 6th December 1870, the club has produced a new commemorative logo for the 2020 season.

The new emblem, researched and designed over the past year, mirrors past club badges that all featured the famous White Horse of Kent on a bright red shield, the colour of the flag of Kent.

Alongside a modernisation of the existing Kent Cricket shield, a gold ribbon has been added that reads “150 YEARS”, as well as the two dates of the club’s founding and its 150th Year.

As well as appearing across all Club publications, it will be worn on a special commemorative Specsavers County Championship playing shirt for 2020 season only, produced by Samurai Sportswear.

A special program of events to coincide with the 150th Year of the club is scheduled throughout 2020. Details will be released shortly.

Kent Cricket’s CEO, Simon Storey, said: “We are all immensely proud to be part of the Kent Cricket family as the Club heads into its 150th Year.

“Everyone is conscious that, as the current stewards of the Club, we are in a unique position to mark this special milestone.

“Cricket has established a unique position at the heart of communities across Kent and continues to play a key role in the social and sporting life of villages, town and metropolitan areas across Kent.

“We will be working hard to ensure that as well as celebrating our 150 years of history, we also inspire the next generation and ensure that we continue to make a positive contribution to life across our County.”
