Kent Cricket have confirmed that it has appointed new Men’s Batting and Bowling coaches ahead of the 2024 season.

Toby Radford has been appointed as Men’s Batting Coach after having previously worked as Head Coach of both Middlesex and Glamorgan, and Batting Coach for the West Indies senior team during their T20 World Cup success in 2012 and Test Series win over England in 2019. 

He played a role in setting up the West Indies High Performance Centre and the Middlesex Academy. He has previously worked with the ECB as a specialist batting coach following a county cricket career with Sussex and Middlesex in the 1990s.

Former Kent right-arm quick Robbie Joseph has been appointed as Men’s Bowling Coach after a stint at Gloucestershire in the same position. Joseph made 110 appearances for Kent between 2004-2011 and in 2014, taking 230 wickets across all formats. 

He has been Gloucestershire Lead Bowling Coach since November 2022 after beginning work with the Bristol-based county side from July of that year, and moves back ‘home’ to Kent to take up a similar position.

Kent’s Director of Cricket, Simon Cook, said: “We’re really pleased to have Toby and Robbie join us and complete our coaching setup.

“Both will work closely with myself, Head Coach Matt Walker, and coaches across our Talent Pathway to help us continue to produce cricketers for Kent and England moving forward.”
