Come and see former Kent and England hero Alan Knott at the St Lawrence Ground

Tuesday 13th March 2012

Former Kent and England wicketkeeper Alan Knott is coming back to the St Lawrence Ground in Canterbury for a night of fun and entertainment. The event, aimed at cricket lovers and keen autograph hunters alike, is a rare opportunity to get close to a cricket legend – and one not to be missed.

The talented gloveman, who appeared in 95 Test matches for England and made over 500 first class appearances, is returning to his former home on Thursday, 3 May 2012 and will reminisce on his fine playing career with his friend and agent Jamie Reid. Supporters will get the chance to ask their questions and some of Alan’s personal memorabilia will be available at all price ranges.

Knott, who is widely regarded as the greatest wicketkeeper of all time, will tell stories of playing for Kent in the club’s most successful period (late 1960s and 1970s) as well as representing England; where he played with the likes of Geoffrey Boycott, Derek Underwood, the late Bobby Woolmer and the man regarded as one of the best captain’s of all time – Ray Illingworth.

Alan, who was named Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1970, is clearly looking forward to his return. He said: “I was lucky enough to play in very talented and successful teams with both Kent and England. I thoroughly enjoyed my career and am now looking forward to sharing an insight into my life as a professional cricketer and to seeing how well the new facilities at the St Lawrence Ground are progressing.”

Limited tickets are still available for the event, which is aimed at both men and women, and can be ordered by calling 07866 151 151 or by emailing
