Player Biography

Kent signed Fred, a tall left arm seamer, ahead of the 2019 season. His First Class and Kent debut came against Loughborough MCCU, where he scored 14* and had match figures of 16-2-38-0 in a rain affected drawn match.

Since then, Fred has featured primarily in white ball cricket, finding a home in our T20 bowling attack as a consistent left arm threat. He played every game of our 2019 T20 campaign, taking 10-wickets with best figures of 2-24 coming against Gloucestershire at the Spitfire Ground.

Fred signed a contract extension in 2020, keeping him at the club until 2022.

Klaassen also plays international cricket for the Netherlands, and has done since 2018. Fred has featured in 4 ODIs and 21 T20Is, and was an important part of the Dutch side that qualified for the 2020 T20 World Cup.
