Player Biography

Academy graduate Ollie Robinson earned his first professional contract in September 2017 after deputising with the gloves on several occasions earlier in the year.

He was selected on the FGS Plant pre-season tour of the West Indies and took two catches in two substitute appearances.

He covered for Adam Rouse after he suffered a dislocated finger against Leicestershire in May before taking a superb juggling catch fielding at point in the final match of the season against Glamorgan in September.

Ollie had a breakthrough season in 2019, scoring his first first-class centuries for the Club including 143 against Warwickshire, and scoring 53 on T20 debut.

That year, he took the most catches out of any wicketkeeper in the County Championship.

In the 2019 close season, Ollie was called up to the England Lions for their red ball Winter tour of Australia. He made his Lions debut against A New South Wales XI, but didn’t bat, in a rain affected draw at North Dalton Park, in Wollongong.

Robinson passed 100 first-class dismissals during 2021’s County Championship, an achievement reached after taking his maiden stumping in senior red ball cricket for Kent.

He also made headlines with a superb run-out, reaching forward with both legs in the air and momentum taking him away from the stumps, against Gloucestershire in the 2021 Vitality Blast, a tournament that Kent went on to win.

He was awarded Kent Men’s Cap number 222 during Lunch on Day One of Kent’s LV= Insurance County Championship match with Gloucestershire in June 2022.

That August, Robinson hit Kent’s highest individual score in List A cricket as they chased down a 352 target with 5.1 overs to spare in their opening Royal London Cup encounter with Worcestershire Rapids at New Road.

A lofted cover drive for four against Josh Baker took Robinson to a double ton from 130 balls and was the cue for a standing ovation all around the ground and he ended on 206 not out.

Kent went on to reach the Royal London Cup final that season, where he scored 43 runs against Lancashire at Trent Bridge to help Kent lift the trophy for the first time since 1974.

In September 2022, it was announced that he would join Durham ahead of the 2023 season.
