Adams lengthens Kent tenure
Kent have rewarded Jimmy Adams for a promising first season as head coach with a contract extension until the end of the 2014 campaign.
The former West Indies captain was appointed to the role in January last year. He led Kent to third in LV= County Championship Division Two and their Clydesdale Bank 40 group after they finished fourth in their Friends Life t20 pool.
Kent’s financial limitations have left Adams banking on his 2012 players to challenge for honours this year, with seamer Simon Cook’s release the only change in personnel to a squad that will be captained by James Tredwell who has taken over from Rob Key.
Adams said: “I am extremely pleased that the county has seen fit to extend my contract to 2014. I look forward to this continued involvement with the county and, with it, the opportunity to work with an exciting and talented group of players”.
Kent chairman Graham Johnson said: “We are absolutely delighted with Jimmy’s further commitment to Kent. 2012 was very encouraging; he took the role with a desire to create something sustainable at Kent Cricket. It’s great that we can now plan with him to build on his first year over the next two seasons.”
