Peter Cavender

Now in to his 24th year as a qualified coach, Peter has coached cricketers from ages 4 to 74.


As head coach at Staplehurst since 2003, he has seen many children through the junior section on to playing in the senior sides, some with representative honours.


He was Kent Cricket’s coach of the year in 2014 and a runner-up in that year’s ECB national coaching awards.


Career highlights so far are taking the Kent County Girls U13 side to two national one day finals finishing runner-up in both.


Cav – as he is more familiarly known – played cricket from the age of 9, representing Kent Schools at U11 and U13, before captaining Maidstone Grammar School 1st XI and Addington Village 1st XI. Having hanged up his playing boots three years ago, he now focuses on giving others the benefit of his knowledge and experience.
