Biography: Kevin spent all his early years in Cornwall and played for the County at Under 18 level before moving to Hampshire, playing his Cricket in The Three Counties and Thames Valley Leagues.

In 1986 he took over the preparation and maintenance of his local club ground before turning what was a hobby into a full time job, becoming responsible for four club grounds in North East Hampshire, supervising, with volunteers, their preparation and maintenance. In 1993 he took over the ground of one of the Southern League Clubs which was the highest marked ground for 4 consecutive years.

Kevin returned to Cornwall in 2004 and has since been responsible for the ground at Tintagel and was appointed ECB Pitch Advisor for Cornwall in 2012. His aim is to use his many years practical experience to help Clubs and Groundsmen throughout the County, at all levels, to improve their playing surfaces, if he can help in any way   please feel free to contact him.
