Kent bowler Jenni Jackson celebrated her graduation at Canterbury Christ Church University after completing her PGCE course in Psychology.

The 24-year-old was a Sport Scholar and received specialist support and coaching to continue her cricketing career alongside her studies.

The seamer, who made her Kent debut as a teenager in 2010, said: "I'm delighted to graduate as getting the balance between study, work placements, training and a part-time job has been a challenge.

"The University has been so supportive with coaching sessions that fitted around the demands of the course.

"The course has definitely prepared me for the demands of a career in teaching."

Jackson is now teaching at Mascalls Academy in Paddock Wood.

On the pitch, Kent Women fell just short in their bid for silverware but will bid for a record seventh County Championship title in 2016.

The number 11 said: "We were so close to winning both the County Championship and T20 titles but we were encouraged with our form without our England players.

"A number of young players stepped up and got vital experience and to win matches without almost half the side was a great achievement."

Canterbury Christ Church University signed a three-year extension to their sponsorship of Kent Women's cricket this year.
