Kent Women to travel to Chelmsford in ‘Battle of the Bridge’ T20

A formidable rivalry in world cricket will write another chapter as Kent Women travel to The Cloud County Ground, Chelmsford, tomorrow evening for a floodlit ‘Battle of the Bridge’ T20 match.

The match is a re-run of a reverse fixture at The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence which was sadly rained off before a result was possible back on 5 July 2021.

This year’s ‘Battle of the Bridge’ is FREE entry to ALL spectators, and will begin at 19:00 at the home of Essex Cricket, The Cloud County Ground in Chelmsford.

A travelling Kent Women squad for this match will be confirmed in due course.

Kent Women Head Coach, Dave Hathrill, said: “Players and supporters alike place a lot of importance of rivalry matches, and we’re really pleased to be able to take-on Essex again after a very well attended, albeit rained-off, fixture in 2021.

“We hope to see as many Kent supporters as possible make the trip to Chelmsford to cheer us on.”

Last season, wet weather could not dampen a celebration of Kent Women as over 300 spectators came to The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence for the Horses’ first ever floodlit match at Canterbury.

Festivities began before play as squad members for this fixture and Horses in attendance that had been awarded county caps were formally presented with numbered playing caps in recognition of their service to Kent Women, including: Susie Rowe, Alice Davidson-Richards, Grace Gibbs and Hannah Jelfs.
