Matt Walker has paid tribute to Geraint Jones ahead of a benefit match for the Kent wicketkeeper at Gravesend Cricket Club.
Former Kent star Walker has put together a side including Michael Carberry and David Masters to take on Jones, pictured, and his XI in a Twenty20 game on Sunday (2pm).
Gravesend-born Walker, now a coach at Essex, said: "I’m looking forward to the game, it will be nice to see a lot of old faces.
"Geraint was one of the sensible ones during my time at Kent. I definitely wasn’t!
"I remember him turning up as a trialist at a 2nd XI game at Taunton and you could tell straight away what a good player he was."
Jones’ XI is expected to feature Kent captain Rob Key, James Tredwell, Darren Stevens, Sam Billings and Sam Northeast.
Proceeds from the game will be shared between Jones’ benefit fund and Gravesend CC.
