Kevin Dean (cricketer)
The imposing, 6'5" tall Dean made his club debut for the Derbyshire Phantoms in 1996 and received the Denis Compton Award in 1998. He achieved his best bowling figures of 8/52 in the 2000 season, otherwise achieving an average of a mere 25.65 throughout his first-class career, which spanned 100 matches.
He tried his hand at Twenty20 cricket in 2005, while turning in a couple of good performances before Derbyshire's exit in the second round of the C&G trophy of that year, also aiding them to the respectable position of quarter-finals in the Twenty20 cup.
Kevin announced his retirement from first-class cricket at the end of the 2008 season after spending 15 years with Derbyshire.
