Champagne Moment  2019

Sophie joined us during the 2019 season, moving from Banbury CC. She made her debut in the Kia Summer Smash Regional Competition at Wellington College, and in the Regional Final against old adversaries Ansty she really made her mark. 

The regional final was a low-scoring affair with boundaries hard to come by, and when we needed eight from three balls with the pacy England Academy bowler Ellen Burt in full flow it appeared our race was run. But Sophie had other ideas – and a powerful hook for four was followed by a ramp over the keeper to see us through to the Oval, where she was part of our victorious side.  The finish at Wellington was voted the Champagne moment of 2019.

Sophie went on to play a leading role in our Southern League triumph, scoring 96 not out against Ickenham, a game in which she shared an unbroken partnership of 142 for the seventh wicket with Anesu Mushangwe, and also registering a half-century at Bishop’s Stortford.

A talented all-rounder who bowls at considerable pace and is a good outfielder, Sophie is now studying at the University of Southampton.
