Eve joined us from Calmore in 2019 as one of the most promising cricketers in the county. She immediately impressed as a batter, wicket-keeper and leg-spin bowler, but realising that it was difficult to pursue all three has subsequently put any wicket-keeping ambitions on hold.

A player who is very comfortable playing above her age, Eve featured strongly in our under 16 team both indoors and outdoors as well as being a dominant force in the under 13s with her leg-spin bowling.

 

She is progressing rapidly, and in 2020 was permitted to play senior cricket despite just turning twelve. Adjusting quickly to the longer pitch and larger ball Eve did not look out of place and in her first match shared a seventh wicket partnership of 64 with centurion Becky Blake. At the end of the shortened season Eve took two wickets in a Hampshire League game, and then bowled impressively in a 1st team debut at Ansty, where she also saw us home with the bat.

In 2021 Eve will again be part of the Hampshire under 13 squad and is also part of the county’s EPP (Emerging Players Programme). She will also skipper our under 13s and will no doubt look to push on in senior cricket.
