Kent Cricket celebrates Black History Month

During October, we will be celebrating the contributions of a select number of Kent Cricket’s black and bi-racial cricketers from the Club’s 151-year history.

Black cricketers have made substantial contributions to Kent; in title-winning teams, and also captaining sides that live long in the memory of Kent Members and supporters.

The Club is committed to taking the right steps to ensure that Kent Cricket is a Club for everyone, and we remain fully committed to our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy.

Kent Cricket CEO, Simon Storey, said: “Kent has a proud tradition of trophy-winning sides featuring players from around the world and from a variety of backgrounds.

“Although this month is Black History Month, we believe that the history of our black cricketers should be a year-long celebration.

“The Club is working hard to become more of an inclusive environment at all levels.

“We acknowledge that there is still a lot of work to do to achieve this across our sport, but we are striving to make positive steps towards a more equal, diverse and inclusive world for us all.”
