Kent’s Second team have numerous fixtures throughout the year at various home venues including Beckenham, Tonbridge School, King’s School Canterbury, Maidstone and Folkestone as well as playing at Canterbury. The role of the second team is essential in that it provides the environment for future first team players to be challenged in. The team can change regularly over the course of a season and is made up of Academy players, players in the professional squad who aren’t involved with the First XI and players coming back from injury. Second team games can attract loyal support and all spectators are always welcome at our home venues. The second team programme involves a three day championship, a one day trophy competition and a T20 tournament.
