Kent County Cricket Club have announced an operating profit of £188,000 in 2011.

The news comes as a boost to the county who struggled on the field in 2011, and also have had financial difficulties in recent times. In 2010 Kent recorded a net loss of £595,000, and there were some fears that the county would struggle to exist in the current climate.

If the county continues to work in a profitable way this should aid performances on the pitch at the St Lawrence ground. New coach Jimmy Adams will now have more resources to improve the playing staff at Canterbury.

Speaking of the financial success in 2011 Kent’s chairman George Kennedy said: “I am delighted that the financial benefits of the work carried out at the St Lawrence Ground in the last year are starting to show in our results. We now have conferencing and event facilities which make Kent Cricket a year-round business, in effect making the ground fit for purpose.”

Kent will be hoping the success off the field can transfer onto the pitch in 2012 as they bid for promotion from division two of the County Championship.
