Indoor Bowler of the Year 2020

Anya joined the club from Andover CC near the end of the 2018 season and was thrust straight in to a Southern Premier League debut at St.Lawrence the following day.  She soon established herself as a regular in both indoor and outdoor teams, and a keen tourist too!

An attacking, if somewhat unorthodox, batter and seam bowler who has increased her pace in the last year ‘Shrubs’ played a part in both the 1st X1 and 2nd X1 title winning seasons in 2019, a spell of six overs for four runs in the Hampshire League win against Burridge being particularly notable.

She plays in our indoor league teams at both Dummer and Eastleigh, often on the same day – and has picked up winners medals from both of her Serious Cricket League campaigns.

Enjoying a fruitful indoor season in 2019/20 Anya was poised to break the HP indoor wickets record until the pandemic cut the season short. Her 26 wickets earned her the Indoor Bowler of the Year award.

An always cheerful teammate Shrubs also helps with junior coaching and has become an integral part of the club in a very short time. She is currently a first-year student at the University of West of England in Bristol
