Player Biography

Charlotte Edwards CBE spent 16 seasons at the club.

The former England captain lifted the domestic double with Kent in her final season in 2016 to bring her tally of trophies to ten with the county.

She influenced and nurtured a new generation of Kent cricketers with the likes of Megan Belt, Tammy Beaumont, Alice Davidson-Richards, Tash Farrant, Lydia Greenway, Grace Gibbs and Laura Marsh earning England honours during her spell at the club.

The former captain said: “I would like to thank everyone at Kent County Cricket Club for all their support over the past 18 years. I’m immensely proud to have played for the county and what the team has achieved within that time.

“Kent is very much seen as one of the leading counties within the women’s game due to it consistently producing players to the England Pathway.

“It’s been a really tough decision to leave Kent but ultimately I feel it’s the right decision for me and more importantly the current team. Having won the double in 2016 I feel this is a fitting end to my time as a Kent cricketer.

“I have many memories and highlights from my Kent career, winning our first County Championship in 2006 at Uppingham school and the recent 2016 Double are obvious highlights.

“Finally I’d like to thank all coaches, mangers and players I have played with throughout the years. Kent will always have a special in my heart and I wish the team all the very best for the future.”
