Kent confirm signing of all-rounder Calum Haggett

St Lawrence Ground

Kent have signed former Somerset all-rounder Calum Haggett ahead of the new county season.

A former England Under-19 player, the 22-year-old played for Kent's second XI in the final two months of last summer.

"A large part of what we're trying to do here is develop young, talented players," Kent head coach Jimmy Adams told the club website.external-link

"We're keen to watch them grow, players that age can go as far as they want - I'm very happy with this signing."

Haggett's only experience of first-team cricket came in early 2011 when Somerset were one of two English counties to take part in the Caribbean T20 competition and he played in three matches.
