Gloucestershire have signed fast bowler James Fuller on a three-year contract while Kent have made the decision to let Phil Edwards leave the club.
Fuller, 20, plays for Otago in New Zealand and will play as a non-overseas member of the squad as he holds an English passport. He has represented New Zealand Under-19s and has trained with the national team.
Fuller told the club's official website (www.gloscricket.co.uk): “The opportunity of playing cricket for Gloucestershire under John Bracewell, on so many famous grounds, and amongst such great players is truly the chance of a lifetime. I am extremely grateful to GCCC for having faith in me, and look forward to repaying that through my pace bowling, and allrounder ability."
Meanwhile, after playing just one first-class match this season, fast bowler Edwards is leaving Kent with immediate effect having featured mainly for the second team this year.
Head coach Paul Farbrace told the club's website (www.kentccc.com): “I would like to thank Phil for the contribution that he has made. He wants to stay in the game so we wish him well and hope that he is successful in his future career.”
