A talented footballer who has been on the academies of Reading, Eastleigh, and Southampton, Kezia joined us in 2018, recruited by junior coach Matt Ellerby, and is one of our brightest prospects. 

She soon showed her all-round ability and played for the under 16s as a 12 year old, as we retained our league title. Kezia also shows good leadership qualities and captained our under 13 side in the shortened 2020 season, setting a good example with her own fielding. 

One of the highlights of the 2020 summer was her partnership with Hattie Platt against Ropley which included positive running between the wickets and saw us win from an unlikely position. Kezia displays a cricket awareness that belies her years - and made her senior debut in 2020, taking two wickets at Ropley. She has also proved a prolific run scorer in indoor cricket, including a half-century against St.Cross at River Park. 

A member of the very strong Hampshire under 13 squad in 2020 Kezia has been promoted to the county under 15s this year.
