PUBLISHED: 09:00 30 April 2019
Portishead Cricket Club's Ellen Armstrong has been selected to represent Somerset Under-15 girls this summer.
After a winter of intensive development training with lead coaches from the county, the left-arm bowler is looking forward to the challenge.
“Ellen is a talented cricketer and works hard at her cricket,” said junior cricket co-ordinator Paul Tarr.
“She's more than a match for her counterparts at this age group and at 14 still has another year at this level to improve further.
“We're delighted for Ellen to be given this opportunity and also pleased it puts Portishead on the map for enabling girls to participate in cricket at all levels.”
Armstrong begins her season with Somerset with warm-up matches against Kings School Taunton and Millfield before facing neighbouring counties.
