The 31-year-old right-hand batsman made his first class debut in 1998 and enjoyed two spells with the club.

Commenting on his departure, Kent team director, Paul Farbrace, said: “I would like to thank James for the contribution he has made to Kent cricket. He has been an excellent squad player and worked hard in his second attempt at county cricket, after a period out of the game. The time is now right for him to move on and concentrate on his teaching career.”
