A talented all-round sportswoman, Vicky represented Hampshire age groups in rugby, cricket and netball.  Having joined HP as a junior in 2007 she made her senior debut in 2009. Unfortunately Vicky suffered a serious rugby injury which prevented her playing much cricket for the next two years– but she returned in 2012 and was part of the 1st X1 which claimed the Southern League Championship and subsequent promotion to the Southern Premier League. In the title deciding game at Hastings she made 34 in a vital 5th wicket partnership of 72 with Dani Ransley.

Sadly the long-term effects of the rugby injury forced Vicky to give up cricket after that season, which prevented a very promising career from realising its potential.

Vicky now lives in Broughton and is an Estate Agent in Romsey

 

This is what Vicky had to say in January 2021:

 

Not playing cricket anymore but have now taken back up netball.

Currently Working as an estate agent in Romsey but live in Broughton, just outside Stockbridge. 

Fond memories of just a really friendly fantastic team, really enjoyed playing for HP and was great fun!
