The Club can confirm that Matt Quinn has signed a three-year contract with Kent, which is effective for the beginning of the 2022 season. Ahead of his move, Matt will join Kent on loan for the remainder of the current campaign.

The 28-year-old fast bowler will link up with the Kent squad immediately but won’t be available for selection in fixtures against Essex this season.

Quinn joined the Club in December 2015 and has played 16 first-class games for the Club, which included figures of 7/76 against Gloucestershire at Cheltenham in his debut season. He has been a more prominent member of the Eagles white-ball side during his time at Essex, playing 14 List A and 30 Twenty20 appearances.

He enjoyed a successful spell on loan at Kent earlier this summer, taking 12 wickets at 19.33 in his four games with his best figures of 4/54 coming against Sussex at Hove in May.

On his departure, Quinn said: “I would like to thank everyone associated with Essex for the support I have received. It was a big step in my career to move over from New Zealand but the Members, supporters, staff, coaches and teammates have been great throughout my time at the Club.

"I'm privileged to have shared some amazing experiences during a fantastic period of success and I look forward to returning to Chelmsford with Kent in the coming years.

Essex Head Coach, Anthony McGrath, said: “It's never easy to see a player leave the Club but this is a great opportunity for Matt in the next step of his career.

"He has had to face long periods out of the game due to the back injury he sustained in 2017 but has worked hard to get back into First Team contention ever since. We are blessed with very talented bowlers at the Club but unfortunately, Matt has sometimes found his opportunities limited as a result.

"Matt has always had a great attitude on and off the field, and everyone at the Club wishes him well in the next step of his career at Kent."

The Club would like to thank Matt for his contribution whilst at Essex and wish him the best of luck for his future with Kent.
