Batter
DOB:

Place of birth:
Neath, Glamorgan

One half of our opening partnership, Gwen is a great batter to have at the top of the order alongside captain, Marie Kelly, as well as being a safe pair of hands behind the stumps.

Having joined Warwickshire in 2017 from Somerset, after becoming the ‘Head of Girls Cricket’ at Shrewsbury School, she has become an integral part of the team ever since.

 

She joined the England U19 Development Programme, after playing for her native Wales Senior Women’s team since she was 13, before heading to Loughborough, where she graduated with a Sport Coaching degree.

Being part of the victorious 2019 T20 squad was undoubtedly a highlight, where she also played some crucial innings, in particular sharing an unbeaten 101 opening partnership against Middlesex with Marie.

Dom Ostler regards her as an entertaining bat out in the middle, but she is also known for being the joker of the side, keeping everyone’s spirits high, even when the fight gets tough.
