🏏 South East Stars complete a memorable 2021 season with a visit of North West Thunder in the Rachel Heyhoe Flint Trophy. Match starts at 10.30am and it’s free entry for spectators.
It’s been a summer to remember so far for South East Stars – London & South East’s representatives at the highest level of domestic women’s cricket – who play their final home match of the season today at The County Ground in Beckenham.
Victory in the inaugural Charlotte Edwards Cup (T20 regional competition) against Northern Stars earlier this month did not come easy, but the taste of victory was all the sweeter for South East Stars after they’d survived a mid-innings collapse. Step forward teenage sensation Alice Capsey who calmly hit an unbeaten 40 off 26 balls to navigate Stars to victory (by 5 wickets with 12 balls remaining) with Capsey named as Player of the Match.
Today in the longer format of the women’s regional hub competition – Rachel Heyhoe Flint Trophy matches are 50-overs a side – South East Stars look to end the season on a high against North West Thunder, despite the fact neither team can reach the play-offs.
Ones to watch: 17-year-old Alice Capsey has been in sensational form this summer starring with bat and ball for Oval Invincibles as they became The Hundred’s first ever champions, before continuing where she left off for South East Stars. Not content with steering Stars to victory in the inaugural final of the Charlotte Edwards Cup (as above) Capsey hit her highest score in the Rachel Heyhoe Flint Trophy (78 off 73 balls) against Lightning Cricket just eight days ago. An England player in the making, today’s match is a great opportunity to watch one of the most exciting talents in women’s cricket.
🏏 Match starts at 10.30am.
Free entry for spectators.
