Kent sign seamer Matt Milnes from Notts

Nottinghamshire seamer Matt Milnes has signed a three-year contract with Kent from the start of the 2019 season.

Kent put in a 28-day approach for the 24-year-old in June as his contract expires at the end of this season.

Milnes made his Nottinghamshire debut against Somerset in June this season, playing in six First Class matches and taking 11 wickets with a best of 4-44 against Essex.

He told the club’s website: “I’m grateful for the opportunity that Notts have given me and I have loved every second of being involved with my childhood club.

“I appreciate all the help I have been given to improve my game but feel the time is right for me to move on and I’m looking forward to getting going with Kent.”

Kent’s director of cricket, Paul Downton, said: “We are really delighted Matt has chosen to join us to continue his development in the game, and at a time when we are making progress.

“Since I arrived, my aim has been to build and develop a seam bowling attack that grows to become the best in the country.

“We now have a crop of bowlers here in the squad with some immense potential.

“Matt has a very big future ahead of him and we look forward to welcoming him into the squad ahead of the 2019 season.”
