Ben Trott will stay at Kent after all, but not as a player. Trott, an opening bowler, was released at the end of summer, but he will take on the position of study support centre manager from January. His role will involve raising the literacy and numeracy levels of children in the Canterbury area.

"I am really excited about my new job," Trott said. "I am obviously disappointed not to be continuing my playing career, but I am thrilled to be able to maintain my links with Kent. I look forward to combining my teaching qualifications with my sporting background for the benefit of local children."

Trott, 26, has a degree in PE and IT technology and he is also a qualified primary school teacher: skills which will be put to good use in his new role.
