    Rachael Heyhoe Flint Cricket Award

    Many congratulations to Grace, from all of us at Birchfield, as the inaugural recipient of the prestigious Rachael Heyhoe Flint Cricket Award, set up in memory of the pioneering cricket star, who died in January last year.  Grace was selected from dozens of talented young cricketers who attended highly competitive trials at Malvern College.  This is the first dedicated girls’ cricket scholarship offered by any school and will be made annually.
    According to one of the selectors, ‘Grace really stood out . . . She has beautiful timing and is calm under pressure.  She has a fierce desire to learn and improve, which often makes the difference between a good player and a great one.’ Grace currently plays cricket at Worfield Cricket Club and plays alongside the boys in Birchfield’s 1stXI.
    Lady Heyhoe Flint captained the successful England women’s side from 1966 to 1978 and was the first female cricketer to hit a six in a Test match.  Grace hopes that “it will give me the chance to try to fulfil my dream of playing cricket for England.” 
    “We are immensely proud of Grace and her outstanding achievements and congratulate her on being the first ever recipient of this new award”, said Mrs Sarah Morris, Headmistress on receiving the wonderful news. 6 December 2018
