Most Improved Player 2020
Freya played occasional junior games for us but joined fully from Chapel Gate at the end of the 2019 summer, just in time to join us on our end of season trip to France!
All-rounder Freya soon bought into the HP indoor ethic, playing in both the Eastleigh and Dummer competitions, and her batting really flourished, highlighted by back-to-back fifties against Yateley and Ropley, the first time that had been achieved in HP colours.
Being a student on the BTEC course at the Ageas Bowl (she is the first female to partake) means regular training throughout the winter and Freya’s improvement was soon evident when the 2020 summer eventually got underway. The season started with a major setback as she was injured in her first over at Alton, an injury that prevented her bowling all summer – but every cloud as the saying goes. Freya was given extra batting responsibility, opening the batting on several occasions for the HP Parrots, and made a positive impression, including a match-winning half-century at Aldershot and culminating with an excellent 41 in the season’s finale at Ansty.
She also played in the Ashford 8s winning side and at the annual awards evening was voted Most Improved Player at the club. Hopefully Freya’s injury problems are behind her and she will be able to continue her progress with HP in all disciplines in 2021.
