Joey Evison, a talented young all-rounder, currently represents Kent. He received his education at Stamford and began his cricket journey in the Nottinghamshire academy, alongside a group of promising youngsters. During this time, he made a name for himself by becoming one of the youngest centurions in the history of the Nottinghamshire Premier League, scoring 113 runs for the Academy team against Attenborough.
After completing his tenure in the academy, Joey made his first-class debut for Nottinghamshire in 2019, impressively scoring 45 runs on his debut. His performances caught the attention of the U19 England selectors, who chose him for a tour of the Caribbean in 2019, followed by his participation in the U19 World Cup in 2020.
During the 2022 season, Joey had a brief stint at Leicestershire before joining Kent on loan for the one-day cup. His time at Canterbury proved to be fruitful, as he played a pivotal role in guiding Kent to the final of the tournament, where his exceptional performance earned him the Man of the Match award and led his new team to victory. Following this success, Joey decided to continue playing in the South East for the final rounds of championship games, where he achieved his first-ever first-class century.
Subsequently, Joey’s loan move became a permanent transfer during the off-season, offering him the opportunity to consistently feature in the first team. He is highly regarded as one of the most promising young talents in the sport and is determined to make enduring contributions in the coming years.
