Women to battle it out for new prize

Lydia Greenway

Kent and England batsman Lydia Greenway will be hoping to carry her fine form into the summer and win the new women's award

This season the trustees of the Walter Lawrence Trophy, supported by Veuve Clicquot, are delighted to announce the launch of a new award for the women’s game.

The award will go to the batsman who makes the highest individual score in a season from the ECB Women’s County Championship, the ECB Women’s County T20 Cup and all England Women’s matches played on home soil.

The winner will receive a cheque for £1,000 as well as an engraved silver medallion and an invitation to the Walter Lawrence Trophy end-of-season presentation dinner in the Long Room at Lord’s.

Former England captain Clare Connor, the ECB’s Head of England Women’s Cricket, declared that she was thrilled at the introduction of the new Walter Lawrence Trophy Award, and its support of the women’s game.

This new initiative completes a quartet of Walter Lawrence Trophy awards, supported by Veuve Clicquot, which encompass four distinct areas of the game.
