KENT have turned to Es­sex seamer Tony Pal­ladino in a bid to help solve their bowl­ing prob­lems. Pal­ladino ar­rives at the St Lawrence ground on a onemonth loan with Kent’s bowl­ing re­sources se­verely stretched. He last fea­tured for Es­sex at the end of April when his five overs cost 48 runs dur­ing a 10-wicket Cly­des­dale Bank 40 de­feat to War­wick­shire. He made his county de­but in 2003 and has 99 first class wick­ets. Pal­ladino said: “I’m re­ally pleased to be join­ing Kent as it gives me a chance to hope­fully play some first team cricket. “I have been with Es­sex for 11 years, from youth team through to the first XI but my chances have been limited this sea­son.” Kent team di­rec­tor Paul Far­brace added: “We are pleased that the deal has been agreed with Es­sex and we now hope that Tony will do well for Kent. He played for Namibia over the win­ter, in the South Africa Air­ways Pro­vin­cial Chal­lenge Se­ries and we hope he per­forms well in Kent colours.”
