Devon Women start their ECB T20 campaign with a pre-season warm up against the Western Storm Academy at Heathcoat CC this Sunday, 10th April. Emily Edgcombe will once again lead the side which also contains Stephanie Hutchins, both of whom have represented the Western Storm Senior side. As agreed with Western Storm, both Becca Halliday and Katie Donovan, who are current members of the Western Storm Academy, will play for Devon on the day. Devon's other regional player, Emma Corney, continues her recovery from injury and so will not be playing.
Devon are going through a transformative period and are fielding a side that is full of promising young players with a lot of potential. All of the players, play their cricket in the Devon Cricket League. They also welcome Amelie Munday from Exeter University, who is on loan from Middlesex whilst she is studying in Devon.
Played at Heathcoat Cricket Club, this early fixture is an excellent opportunity for girls to watch the best female cricketers in the county play and be inspired for the season ahead. All spectators are welcome to the day, which consists of two T20s (11am and 3pm starts)
