Former Kent bowler passes away

Former Kent and England fast bowler Alan Igglesden has sadly passed away aged just 57.

The talented seamer has spent many years battling a brain tumour after retiring from the game.

Affectionately known as Iggy within the game, his passing will come as huge blow to all of those in Kent that knew him.

Having been diagnosed over twenty years ago, Iggy battled on with great spirit and in recent years spoke more about living with the condition.

Igglesden had a successful career spanning 1986 to 1998 during which he bagged 503 first-class wickets at 26.81 for Kent bowling fast-medium seam up.

That’s some 26,579 balls over 154 matches including four ten-wicket hauls.

Everyone at Kent Sports News would like to extend our condolences to Alan’s family and friends at this desperately sad time.
