Kent capture Powell
Kent have confirmed the signing of former Glamorgan batsman Michael Powell on a two-year contract.
Powell, who spent 15 seasons with Glamorgan and is seventh in their list of all-time leading run-scorers, was released in September but will now resume his career at Canterbury.
The 34-year-old has scored 12,461 first-class runs in 212 matches at an average of 38, passing 1,000 runs in a campaign on five occasions.
His arrival bolsters a Kent side who lost Joe Denly and Martin van Jaarsveld at the end of the 2011 season.
Powell said: “I am looking forward to making the move to Kent and I’m extremely pleased to have signed this contract with the club. I hope to make a positive impact next season and look forward to the challenges ahead at Kent County Cricket Club.”
Kent chairman Graham Johnson added: “We are delighted to be able to announce that Michael will be coming to Kent. He has had a very successful career with Glamorgan and still has much to offer county cricket. We look forward to his contributions for the club over the next two years.”
