Heidi only started playing cricket at Stainsby Hall Cricket Club in Smalley 3 years ago after spending many weekends and evenings watching her brother, Alfie playing.

After the first year, she began playing for the Amber Valley under 11s girls team and was invited to take part in trials for the under 11 Derbyshire squad last year. The squad is made up of players from the whole of Derbyshire. Heidi was successful and played for Derbyshire along with other girls from across the County.

This year, her cricket career has sky rocketed and she was asked to Captain the Amber Valley team at the Lady Taverners Tournament last Sunday, where the team saw off their opponents in 4 matches to win the whole thing! Heidi has also been asked to Captain the Derbyshire Under 11s team for this season, which is really something to be proud of.  Fingers crossed for a great season and career!
