Marcus was part of the Kent Academy before heading to University. He impressed for the 2ndXI in 2018, particularly in the Second Eleven Trophy (50 overs). He was pivotal in the Kent 2s winning the competition, and in the final, played at Beckenham, he picked up 4-43 fro, his 10-overs. He removed Scotland international Michael Jones for 60, who was his first scalp as Marcus dismissed 4 of Durham 2s’ top 5. He would have had a 5-wicket-haul had it not been for a dropped catch on the boundary in the closing overs of the final, which Kent won by 16-runs.
Shortly after, Marcus was offered a professional contract at Kent, where he was named in a number of T20 matchday squads before making his debut against Surrey at the Spitfire Ground, St. Lawrence. Kent went down by 1-run but Marcus impressed with his off spin going for just 13 off his 2 overs, and didn’t have the chance to bat.
He made his County Championship debut against Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge. Kent won by 227-runs with Marcus scoring 12 and 9, along with match figures of 7-0-33-0. In 2020, in the Bob Willis Trophy, Marcus scored his maiden First Class half century, scoring 52* as he guided Kent to a successful fourth innings chase of 181.
