After a rained-off scheduled start against Middlesex last week, Kent Women are set to get their 2023 season underway today with a T20 double-header against Surrey at Wimbledon CC.

Kent Spitfires’ T20 opener for 2023 is now less than 5 weeks away, against Gloucestershire at The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence in Canterbury on Wednesday 24 May – entry to all scheduled T20 home matches is included in Kent Cricket Memberships, on sale now.

The Horses will once again take part in two limited-overs competitions – the ECB’s Women’s County T20 tournament & the Women’s London Championship, the 50-over competition between counties in the London & South East area.

Women’s Head Coach, Dave Hathrill, said: “We’ve had a decent little run-in into the season with training sessions for both our senior and youth women’s sides at Polo Farm.

“We’ve got a good squad together this year with lots of depth and quality. We’re going to be engaging more with our local club network this year to give opportunities to talented women’s club cricketers in Kent, too. This is a direct result of changes to how club cricket in Kent is run from a women’s perspective – the new Women’s Premier League will give us a chance to look at and reward talented players at a local level.

“To single out a couple of our younger players – we have an exciting left-armer coming through the system in Imogen Sheriyar, as well as a left-arm spinner in Tilly Corteen-Coleman – she’s made really good progression in the Winter after making her debut last year. Both are also in and around the South East Stars programme, too.

“Genevieve Jeer also made her debut last season and she is a talented batter at only 15 years of age and has a really high ceiling in terms of potential.

“Alice Grant is also coming back from spending the Winter improving her game in Australia – these players are perfect additions to our established players such as Sydney Gorham, Darcey Carter, Megan Sturge & Jemima Spence, who have all had another Winter of going away and improving their game around the world.

“It’s really exciting that we’re able to now look at, and call upon, a lot more players from the new Premier League & also from our Talent Pathway. Hopefully we can make a good start in T20s and then carry that form into the whole season into the 50-over campaign.

“We’re also really excited to be hosting the Battle of the Bridge T20 showcase once again under the lights at The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence in July – it would be great to see as many people come down as possible to see us play!”
