Brayshaw to quit Kent
Ian Brayshaw will not be returning as Kent's director of cricket next season after turning down the offer of an extension to his contract.

The Australian is to return home to Perth after two years at Canterbury

"I have enjoyed every minute of my time at Kent," Brayshaw said.

"I shall take with me many happy memories and am confident that the club will continue to perform at the top of English county cricket for many years to come."

"The playing staff contains some highly talented cricketers who offer the club a really exciting future and in Simon Willis and Chris Stone the club have two excellent coaches."

Geraint Jones has been an outstanding success and that has been reflected by his selection for England
Third in the Championship last season, Kent put a bad start to the season behind them to finish mid-table in Division One.

But they must beat Warwickshire at home on Sunday to be sure of avoiding relegation in the one-day National League.

Kent chairman of cricket Mike Denness paid tribute to Brayshaw's efforts, saying: "Ian has made a huge contribution during his two years at Kent.

"He has left us with his thoughts regarding the best possible coaching structure for the future.

"We will be giving these full consideration over the next few weeks before making any decision regarding his successor."
