Kent Cricket is delighted to announce that Scotland international wicketkeeper-batter Sarah Bryce will feature for Kent Women in the 2020 domestic season.
The 20-year-old featured for Nottinghamshire Women during the 2019 domestic season, finishing the Women’s Royal London County Championship as Notts Women’s fourth-highest run scorer despite only six innings with the bat.
Edinburgh-born Bryce scored 175 Championship runs at an average of 29.17 last season, with a high score of 60 against Yorkshire in June. She also took ten catches and four stumpings in the tournament.
In T20 competition, Bryce has made 51 senior appearances, scoring 1,273 runs at 38.57 with a high score of 101 not out against Cheshire Women from only 64 balls in the Vitality Women’s County T20 Division Two this past June.
A ‘keeper with lightning-fast reflexes, she also has 27 career stumpings in T20 competition.
Usually opening the batting for Scotland, she has made 20 T20I appearances to date for her country, scoring 511 runs at 39.30, her current high score of 65 coming against Netherlands Women this past September, also taking 14 catches and 15 stumpings.
On joining Kent Women, Bryce said: “Kent have an outstanding pedigree in women’s cricket, with a record number of Championship titles and multiple T20 titles, too.
“I’m eager to improve my game and I feel that there is no better place to do so in domestic women’s cricket than at Kent, where I can learn from experienced Internationals and look to contribute on the field straight away.”
Kent’s Director of Cricket, Paul Downton, said: “Sarah is an exciting young talent in the women’s game and we’re thrilled that she has chosen to continue her development at Kent.
“She is already an accomplished wicketkeeper-batter and will add to the existing quality we have in the Kent Women squad here.”
