Felsted School’s Nancy Hebron has been selected for the England Women’s Cricket U15 Development Programme.
The 14-year-old will train with a select group in the U15 Winter Training Squad.
This is a key pathway towards representing England at the senior level.
In the last six months three players have made the transition to the England Women’s performance Squad from the England Women’s Academy.
Jason Gallian, the school’s director of cricket and an ex-England and Essex cricketer, said: “We are delighted, though not surprised, that Nancy has been selected for the England U15 training squad.
“It has been a pleasure to nurture and develop her talent at Felsted, thus far”
Hebron, a boarding student in Year 9 at Felsted, enjoyed a prolific county season last year scoring three consecutive hundreds for Essex U13 Girls.
This is the first time that this has ever been achieved at any level in the history of Essex Women and girls’ cricket.
