OE honoured at annual Cricket Writers’ Awards

Old Epsomian, Natalie Sciver, took the Women’s Cricket award at the annual Cricket Writers’ Awards after captaining Surrey Stars to the Super League title.

Natalie began the season by being named as one of Wisden’s five Cricketers of the Year and helped England to victories over India, South Africa and New Zealand before leading Surrey to a 66-run win over Loughborough Lightning in the Super League final in August. Only two women had previously been recognised by Wisden’s.

Natalie’s cricketing talent was recognised during her time at the College where she spent two full seasons playing alongside boys in the 1st XI. She left Epsom in 2011 and was a member of the England Women’s Cricket Academy at Loughborough University.
