Head coach Matt Walker admitted Kent produced a typical end of season display in their final Specsavers County Championship Division 2 game of the season against Glamorgan.
After establishing a first innings lead of 73 at the Spitfire Ground St Lawrence Kent were dismissed for a season low total of 115 second time around and slipped to a five-wicket defeat.
The result left the county in fifth - after they had been among the early pacesetters - and Walker admitted the squad were dispirited after the match against Derbyshire at Chesterfield the week before had been abandoned without a ball being bowled.
He said: "It was a typical end of season performance by us. We didn't play well enough over the course of the four days to merit anything.
"It was a demotivated effort after the Chesterfield wash-out last week, the boys had little to play for and I felt for them in a way because they were in a difficult place.
"Hogan (Glamorgan fast bowler Michael Hogan who took 6-43 on his way to match figures of 10-87) bowled beautifully last night (Tuesday) and caught us on the hop a bit
and we struggled to get back from there.
"It was a disappointing way to lose another game, because my message to end the season was to finish on a high.
"It's a bit of a damp squib, this season hasn't really happened for us but I can't grumble in terms of the effort that the boys have put in."
