Indoor:

Maddy joined us from Trojans as a junior in 2013, joining the under 13s. At that stage she was primarily a wicket-keeper, but worked on her bowling when it was realised that she could generate some pace from a short run-up.  In 2014 Maddy reached county finals with both our under 13s and under 16s, both matches against Basingstoke. In the under 13 final she top scored in a losing cause, but picked up her first winners medal as we swept Basingstoke aside in the under 16 competition.

Maddy progressed to senior cricket, primarily in the 2nd X1, and has featured in tournament winning teams at Ashford and the Ageas Bowl.  Currently studying Outdoor Adventure Management at Cumbria University, Maddy went on her first HP overseas trip to France in 2019.

 

Maddy and her family have become an integral part of Hursley cricket. Younger sister Caroline also plays, and mum Sarah has served us a scorer and in many other capacities, including playing a few games. Dad Andy also scored and helped with coaching before sadly passing away in 2019.
