I am the Women & Girls Development Officer for the Sussex Cricket Foundation. I first started playing cricket when I was 6 years old, playing for the boys’ team, Shoreham CC and was selected for Sussex at the age of 10.
I won five County Championships as a player and became the head coach between 2012 – 2016, with the side winning the County Championship in 2013 and the National T20 cup in 2016.
My role for the Sussex Cricket Foundation is to develop women and girls cricket across Sussex from community, school to club level. Things have certainly changed when I first started playing the sport – there never used to be any women and girls cricket. I really want to show women and girls the opportunities that are now there to get involved in cricket across Sussex. I also know how sport can have an impact and help someone with their mental health, as I have had depression for many years, been through many difficult times with it, but being involved in sport has helped me.
