If Kent don't have any signings lined up they will certainly be one of if not the weakest county this season. Although I can possibly understand why Coles and Northeast have left it leaves Kent with a squad lacking both numbers and quality. It is certainly concerning that this close to the new season Kent appear to be in a position where they will not be competitive unless signings are made and that most of the other counties already have squads far better than Kent have.
Completely agree, add to the fact that Billings will be absent a lot, Stevens and Claydon are another year older, no overseas player yet, and we released quite a few players, the squad does look alarming thin and devoid of much quality.
A couple signings at least must be made, and not just risking it on club players and hoping they will perform such as Dickson and Stewart, but players with actually county experience. Sadly most other counties have done there signings already, so there is not many players to choose from, but still a few available which might improve the team at least.
Coles was our second highest wicket taker in fc, and highest in one day, and Northeast second highest run scorer in fc, that's a huge void to make up
