Biography

Shirt Partner - Kent County Cricket Supports Club

Adam continues to develop as James Tredwell’s off-spinning understudy and continues to show steady progress in all forms of the game.

Since making his debut in 2011, the Loughborough University student has improved year on year, and proved to be a more than capable deputy for Tredwell last season. 14 wickets in Championship cricket came at an impressive average of 25.79 and he claimed career best figures of 7-150 against Hampshire.

Last season he was a regular in both the Spitfires FL T20 and YB40 sides, claiming 16 wickets altogether as Kent often went with a spinning duo.

With Tredwell remaining firmly in the thoughts of the national selectors, Adam will be looking to press his claims as a first-team regular in 2014.
