It’s Kids for a Quid at the St Lawrence Ground tomorrow!

Tuesday 25th August 2009

THE Kent Spitfires will aim to continue their winning start when they play Surrey Brown Caps in the NatWest Pro40 tomorrow at the St Lawrence Ground in Canterbury.

The Spitfires – who have played a number of their promising youngsters in this competition – have won three of their opening four matches, with a wash-out away at Glamorgan.

Kent have decided to continue with their youngsters for the visit of Surrey. All-rounder James Goodman comes into the 12 in place of Amjad Khan.

Director of Cricket, Graham Ford, is hopeful the Spitfires will continue their good recent form: “The young guys have taken their opportunities and played some good cricket in this competition. We are all looking forward to the visit of Surrey. Matches between the two sides are always fairly close and this game promises to be no different. We are anticipating a good crowd and it should be an interesting spectacle for all concerned.”

For this game, the Club would like to thank all of our members and supporters and help encourage the next generation of Spitfires support!
