Matt Quinn Joins Kent On Loan


Essex County Cricket Club can today announce that Matt Quinn has joined Kent on loan for their next four LV= Insurance County Championship matches.

The 28-year-old will join up with his new teammates immediately and will be available for the upcoming red-ball fixture against Yorkshire at Emerald Headingley, which begins on Thursday 06 May.

Quinn joined Essex ahead of the 2016 season and has taken 50 first-class wickets at an average of 30.80, with his best figures of 7/76 coming against Gloucestershire at Cheltenham.

Ahead of his loan move, Quinn said: “I’m really excited to be going to Kent and can’t wait to get started.

“Hopefully it will be a great opportunity for me to get some game time and get back to taking wickets.”

Essex Head Coach, Anthony McGrath, added: “Matt is an excellent bowler who has found First Team opportunities hard to come by this season.

“We’re lucky at Essex to have an extremely talented squad with such depth and this loan move will give Matt the chance to play more frequently and perform at the highest level.”
