Left-armer Stonehouse, who was handed out a senior contract last winter and represented Stars 14 times this season, has already had a taste of representing England in the U19 World Cup. The 18-year-old was a crucial player for the Three Lions in the inaugural T20 World Cup in South Africa, playing a decisive innings of 25 in the thrilling semi-final victory over Australia.
Spence enjoyed a fantastic year with the bat for the Stars Academy. The 17-year-old was the side’s leading run-scorer, with 402 runs at an average of 44.6, in the 2023 Regional Academy Friendlies.
16-year-old Corteen-Coleman, a left-arm spinner by trade, impressed throughout the 2023 season, finishing as the Stars Academy’s second-highest wicket-taker in the Regional Academy Friendlies with 12 scalps at an outstanding average of 17.25.
Emma Calvert, Regional Director of Women’s Cricket at the South East Stars, said: “It is amazing news for each of them and we’re delighted our players will get this opportunity to keep developing their game.
“The coaches and the training staff at the Stars Academy have been working tirelessly with the squad, and it’s wonderful to see that many of our players are making the most of the opportunities offered to them.
“Alexa showed great maturity this season in the senior side, climbing up and down the order and delivering with the bat as well as the ball. Tilly, Jemima, Charlotte Stubbs and Lambert also displayed their high potential playing for the Academy side. We’re very pleased that their performances have been recognised.”
