Scrivens named England Captain for U19s Women’s T20 World Cup

Kent all-rounder Grace Scrivens has been appointed as captain of England’s U19s side for the first ever U19s Women’s T20 World Cup, due to get underway in South Africa this weekend.

The 2022 Kent Women’s Player of the Year has captaincy experience already in her burgeoning career – she skippered the Horses on four occasions during this year’s Women’s County T20 competition, as well as being captain for Kent Women’s first ever floodlit match at The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence against Essex Women back in 2021.

Entry to all Kent Women matches is FREE for valid 2023 Members – early bird discount on Membership ends on 31 January 2023.

Taking to social media, Kent Women’s Head Coach, Dave Hathrill, said: “So exceptionally proud of Scriv seeing how she has developed through the pathway at Kent Cricket.

“She is so deserving of this opportunity and to have been able to play a small part in her journey is an honour.

“I have no doubt that she will smash it, bring it home!”

Scrivens will skipper her Kent teammates, Ryana MacDonald-Gay & Alexa Stonehouse, with Kent Women legend Laura Marsh a part of the coaching setup.

The England team travelled to South Africa this past week, & will kick-off the tournament against Zimbabwe this Sunday.
