Anna’s cricketing career started by joining her brother at an All Stars programme at Benwell and Walbottle Cricket Club.
From that she played under 9s, 11s and 13s, and in the last year joined Blagdon Park Cricket Club where she has played for the under 14s and ladies team.
The under 14s finished top of the table with several PHS students in the team; the ladies team will next week be playing in a final against Stocksfield ladies.
Anna is really committed to her cricket and this involves training sessions twice a week with additional training and games for Northumberland County Under 13s.
During term time, along with many girls from PHS she participates in cricket as an after school activity. Her big highlights this season have been taking a hat trick and, in a ladies semi final, running two of the opposition out with direct hits.
