Kemp calls for T20 crowd support – tickets still available

Saturday 25th July 2009

IN-FORM all-rounder Justin Kemp (pictured) is urging the Kent fans to get fully behind the players in tomorrow“s big Twenty20 Cup quarter-final, against the Durham Dynamos, at Canterbury. The Spitfires will be cheered on by a bumper crowd, in the first match at the St Lawrence Ground for nearly two months, and Kemp believes home advantage could prove crucial: “The home draw is great for us because our supporters really get behind us in T20 and make lots of noise. It“s obviously a long journey for Durham but they will be well up for it. Like us, they are a quality one-day unit.”

It“s the first meeting between the two teams, in this competition, although it was honours even last year in other competitions as Kemp remembers only too well: “We did well against Durham up there and beat them in the Friends Provident Trophy. That was a great win for us and put us into the final of the FPT. They then got their own back with a win in the Championship, which relegated us into the second division. There isn“t much to choose between the two sides and I expect this one to be another close game.”

Tickets are still available for the big game. The action begins at 5.40pm and a huge crowd is anticipated. Over six thousand tickets have already been sold. Please come along and help cheer on the Kent Spitfires. Tickets cost £25 for adults and £10 for juniors. You can purchase yours from any of the entrance points at the St Lawrence Ground in Canterbury.
