Kendal Cricket Club has signed three new players for the 2023 season, all of whom are no strangers to Shap Road.

Cumbria's wicketkeeper/batsman Finlay Richardson returns to his Kendal roots after a few seasons elsewhere.

The popular and gregarious Finlay is a welcome recruit to the senior ranks. Finlay’s brother Lewis also re-joins the club.

Another familiar face to join the club is Freddie Fallows - son of former Kendal captain David Fallows.

Freddie is a left-hand bat and slow left-arm spinner with county 2nd XI experience for Leicestershire.

Meanwhile the club has completed the re-engagement of Rongsen Jonathan as club professional.

A strong batsman who scored over 1,000 runs for the club across all formats in 2022 with a top score of 118 not-out.

His occasional off-spin claimed 33 wickets in the season with a best of six for 12.

Jonathan returns for a 2nd season.

Fixtures for the 2023 season have been released and Kendal will start their league campaign at home against Longridge.

In the 40-over league cup they are away to Leyland in round 1.

The club has also entered the ECB National knockout and has a home tie in round one against the winners of the match between Little Lever and Highfield.

The Northern Premier League T20 competition has changed format slightly by going back to 4 regional groups of 3 teams.

Kendal will face Netherfield and Penrith in the home and away group matches.
