Jason Webb’s has brought over half his home country in an attempt to bring the regular A grade victories back to Kent. Kent haven’t won the A grade crown since 2002 but with the influx of Australia talent that is due to arrive this year they could well mount a serious challenge.
The first stop for Webby on his signing spree was his extended family, bringing in his brother-in law’s brother, Todd Weston, who has represented New South Wales. He then moved north, snapping up young Queensland talent Beau Moore and, finally, he managed to procure the services of 2003 World Cup star Jamie Grimmond (providing he can take time off his busy polo schedule in order to come play in the UK). One blow for Kent is that it seems less likely that Josh Greenwood will be returning to the UK this year but, even without him, it seems Kent will be fielding a top class A grade side.
Kent also have young talent for the future at their disposal, namely Tessa Newton, Oscar Harding, Sam Marsh, Clara Smith and Will and Annie Waterer (that is, of course, providing Oscar doesn’t upset Rick Murray again, in which case he could find himself in trouble).
