Saturday 24th September 2016

Men’s First Team

Fast bowler David Griffiths has left Kent at the end of his contract.

Among the 31-year-old's best returns included 4/22 against Middlesex in the NatWest T20 Blast, 3/49 v New Zealand A in a 50-over match and a best of 6/63 in the County Championship.

The right-armer said: “The time has come for me to now leave Kent to seek a new opportunity.

“I have had a fantastic time over the last 3 years here at the club and would like to thank all the fans, coaches and players for their support.

“Kent has a fantastic team with some great characters and I wish them all the best for next season and I hope our paths cross again in the future.”

Kent Cricket Academy graduate Sam Weller has also left the club.

The 21-year-old has made six first-class appearances for Oxford MCCU but did not play for Kent's first XI in his two years as a professional at the club.

Everyone at Kent Cricket thanks David and Sam for their service and wishes them all the best for the future.
