Kent head coach Jimmy Adams will not be extending his current contract beyond 2016.

Former West Indies Test star Adams will return to Jamaica after five years at the club having enjoyed his spell in county cricket.

The 48-year-old said: “I’ve enjoyed my time at Kent which has been a great learning experience for me.

“I wanted to be involved in a club that was seeking to grow and I am fortunate to have found that here at Kent over the past five seasons.

“It's been a delight being involved with all our players as they have developed during the period and especially watching the younger players who have made the step up to First Class level.”

“Working with the club to develop a stronger support team to back up our players has also been a highlight for me.”

“I’m extremely grateful for the members and supporters who have consistently backed me, the team and the club’s overall vision.”

Chairman George Kennedy CBE said: “We thank Jimmy for his fine service of the club and wish him all the best for the future.

“His commitment to developing Kentish cricket talent is shown by the core of homegrown players now at the heart of our professional squad.”
