“To have finished the season as well as I have (424 runs in my last four innings, including 141no, 138no, 51 and 152no) is unbelievable; it’s been a September to remember with the bat!
Sophie added: “I feel I have really kicked on this season and have deserved to keep my place on the academy. I will be looking to continue working hard and really push for a performance squad place.”
