Two Kent Women in England Women U19 squad for Tri Series

The England Women U19 squad to tour Sri Lanka to take on the hosts and Australia in a Tri Series has been confirmed, with Kent’s Tilly Corteen-Coleman & Alexa Stonehouse both involved in the 15-player squad.

Corteen-Coleman, who won Player of the Year & Players’ Player of the Year at the 2023 Spitfire Kent Cricket Awards, enjoyed a breakout season for regional side South East Stars this past Summer, alongside her Stars & Kent teammate Alexa Stonehouse, who is also included.

Both T20 and 50-over formats of the tour will be played in late March and early April with the dates and venues to be announced in due course.

An unmissable evening of cricket is coming to Canterbury in the Summer of 2024, and tickets are now on sale to see England’s heroes take on the White Ferns of New Zealand in Canterbury, just an hour’s journey from the capital.

Within the group are a number of players that attended the inaugural ICC Women’s U19 World Cup in South Africa in January 2023 and who are still ageeligible. They are joined by some players who are U19 for the 2024 season only and some players who will also remain as U19 players for the second Women’s U19 World Cup in Malaysia in January 2025 and therefore will be in contention for that programme later in 2024.

Head coach Chris Guest said: “We are all looking forward to our forthcoming series in Sri Lanka.

“We have selected a good mix of those who have represented this age group before and those who are new.

“It’s a really exciting squad who are relishing the chance to compete against quality opposition.

“To have the opportunity to play T20 and 50-over cricket is really important.

“It’s a chance for the players to be exposed to and experience different conditions and will present excellent learning opportunities. These will help support the development of the players within their regions and hopefully one day to play for the senior team.”
