Kent coach Paul Farbrace hails Tunbridge Wells support

Farbrace says he enjoys playing cricket at out-grounds

Kent cricket coach Paul Farbrace says the people of Tunbridge Wells have earned next year's festival.

An estimated 6,000 people attended the FP t20 game against Sussex after a well-supported County Championship match against Nottinghamshire.

County cricket has been played at the Nevill Ground since 1901 and Farbrace enjoyed the ground's atmosphere.

"Players enjoy coming here and you can tell from the support people love their cricket here," he told BBC Radio Kent.

Kent now only play at two grounds away from their Canterbury headquarters, Beckenham and Tunbridge Wells, and the latter is the only ground not owned by the club itself.

Farbrace added: "We had a full house, we had a great game of cricket, and Tunbridge Wells deserves to have a county week next year. There is no doubt about that."
