Cox to join Essex at the end of the season

Kent Cricket can confirm that Jordan Cox will be leaving the county to join Essex at the end of the year, after having turned down a new contract with the county.

The Kent Cricket Academy graduate made his Kent debut in 2019, & has gone on to make 109 appearances, scoring 3,371 runs.

He remains available for Kent until the conclusion of this season.

On leaving Kent, Cox said: “I’d like to thank everyone at Kent for everything they have done for me to get me where I am today.

“I’ll miss my teammates, coaches and the staff at Kent but I feel that now is the time for me to move on.

“The Club will always hold a special place in my heart, and I will always look back on my time here fondly.

“I will continue to give my all for Kent during the rest of my time here.”

Kent’s Director of Cricket, Paul Downton, said: “We’re disappointed that Jordan has decided to move on from Kent next year.

“He has made a name for himself as a Kent cricketer and has been extremely well supported by the Club.

“That said, we would like to thank Jordan for his contributions to Kent Cricket and wish him well with his cricket in the future.”
