Profile

John Ring was one of Kent's best batsmen in the late 18th century and was employed by Sir Horatio Mann at Bourne as a huntsman. He originally came from the Dartford area. Short and thick-set, he was noted for his play to leg and was a good single wicket player. Joey Ring made 90 known first-class appearances from 1782 until 1796 when he seems to have withdrawn from major matches.
