Adams becomes a man of Kent

NEW POST: Jimmy Adams will coach Kent in the summer

NEW KENT coach Jimmy Adams has said “that he can’t wait to get started” in his new post. The former West Indies captain will start as the county's new head coach from next month.

"Kent are a county with a proud history and tradition," said Adams. "I look forward to working towards further success in the year to come and can't wait to get started."

43-year-old Adams, who played 54 Test matches and 127 one-day internationals, replaces Paul Farbrace, who left at the end of last season.

Since retiring in 2004, Adams has coached the West Indies Under-19s team and has been technical director of Jamaica Cricket.

Kent chairman of cricket Graham Johnson said Adams had emerged from a strong field of candidates from around the world to land the job.

"We are delighted that Jimmy will take up the position," said Johnson. "He has a strong desire to see young players develop and this shone through in our discussions with him.

"He also has a tremendous amount of experience from his time in international cricket - particularly as captain.
"We welcome Jimmy to Kent and wish him the very best of luck."
