A right-handed wicket-keeper batsman, he made his first-class debut for Loughborough MCCU against Leicestershire in 2019, as a part of the Marylebone Cricket Club University fixtures.
He signed for Leicestershire in 2019 and used to feature regularly for their playing XI. He had a string of impressive performances for the second XI, which included a gritty 178 against Nottinghamshire.
In May 2021, Kimber signed his first professional deal with the club and was immediately drafted in the County squad to face Hampshire.
