Player Biography

England international Matt Parkinson will join Kent from Lancashire on a three-year contract from 1 November 2023, joining the county on loan for the 2023 Metro Bank One Day Cup.

The leg-spinner has represented his country in all forms of the game after making his England debut in an IT20 against New Zealand in 2019.

On joining Kent, Parkinson said: “The time is right for me to embrace a new challenge and environment. I’m so excited that this will be at Kent.

“I’m proud of my record in the game so far & I believe my best years as a leg-spin bowler are ahead of me. I’ve heard very positive things about the squad and I’m looking forward to working with Matt Walker and the other coaches.

“I promise my new teammates and the Kent supporters that I will throw myself into this new challenge and I can’t wait to get down to Canterbury to get started.”
