County Teams & Selections

KCAA Executive would like to thank James Roberts for all the hard work and enthusiasm he has put in as Secretary (work horse of Kent Committees!) of Team Management and Selection committee as he now finds it time to step down for personal reasons. His aim was to bring greater transparent and communicate more as a committee; which I know he has achieved.

The current committee will be covering the work until a new Secretary can be found (offers to join the committee or even become Secretary would be welcome) and as before they can be contacted kentaaselect@gmail.com 28-05-18
