TEAMS

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 Joey Ring made 90 known first-class appearances from 1782 until 1796 when he seems to have withdrawn from major matches.

Ring is believed to have been a cricketing fatality. It seems that his nose was broken in the summer of 1800 by a practice ball bowled by his brother George. Ring became ill and and was bedridden for several weeks before dying, evidently of a fever that developed as a result of his accident.
